NHL
Colorado 6, Detroit 3
Nazem Kadri and Nathan MacKinnon scored 1:54 apart and the Colorado Avalanche were propelled by another second-period spurt in a 6-3 win over the reeling Detroit Red Wings. The Avalanche also pulled away from the defending Stanley Cup champion St. Louis Blues with a middle-period flurry over the weekend. Leading 2-1 early in the third, Kadri helped Colorado put the game out of reach when he and Matt Nieto added goals within 53 seconds of each other. Ryan Graves and MacKinnon also scored in the third. Tyler Bertuzzi, Dylan Larkin and Givani Smith scored for Detroit.

TENNIS – AUSTRALIAN OPEN
Top seed Rafael Nadal has won his opening-round match at the Australian Open.
Nadal coasted to a 6-2, 6-3, 6-0 win over Hugo Dellien in his first competitive match at Rod Laver Arena since losing to Novak Djokovic (JOH’-koh-vihch) in last year’s final. The 33-year-old Nadal dropped a service game once in each of the first two sets but was too dominant for No. 73-ranked Dellien.
The top-ranked Nadal is chasing his 20th major singles title.
Milos Raonic (ROW’-nihch) and 12th-seeded Fabio Fognini won the completion of their matches, which were stopped by wet weather the previous day. Fognini needed five sets to advance. No. 5 Dominic Thiem (teem) also reached Round 2.
American and women’s 10th seed Madison Keys cruised into the second round, but former No. 1 Maria Sharapova was a 6-3, 6-4 loser to No. 19 Donna Vekic.
No. 12 Johanna Konta suffered her earliest Australian Open exit with a first-round loss to Tunisian Ons Jabeur, 6-4, 6-2 at Melbourne Park. Konta has been bothered by a knee injury that allowed her to complete in just one match since a quarterfinal exit at the U.S. Open last September.
Second-seeded Karolina Pliskova and No. 6 Belinda Bencic (BEHN’-chihch) each won in straight sets.
