     DENVER (AP) - Matt Duchene scored two goals and had an assist, and the Colorado Avalanche extended their strong start by beating the Carolina Hurricanes 4-2 on Friday night.
 
     Erik Johnson and Alex Tanguay also scored for the Avalanche (9-1), who topped Carolina at home for the ninth straight time. Semyon Varlamov made 28 saves in the win.
 
     Carolina, which got goals from Drayson Bowman and Andrej Sekera, came into the game scrambling at the goalie position.
 
     Justin Peters, recalled from Charlotte of the AHL earlier this month, made his first start of the season because of injuries to the Hurricanes' top two goalies and stopped 30 shots.
 
     Cam Ward left Thursday's game at Minnesota in the first period with a lower-body injury, and Anton Khudobin has missed five games, also with a lower-body injury that has landed him on the injured list.
