Parenteau scored early in the third period to help the Avs edge Toronto 2-1 on Tuesday night. Cory Sarich also scored for Colorado (3-0-0), which is off to its best ever start. Michael Matthews collected his first career Tour de France stage win with victory ahead of world champion Peter Sagan in Revel on Tuesday.Australian sprinter Matthews won from the remnants of the breakaway at the end of the 197-kilometre stage 10 from Escaldes-Engordany, having had two Orica-BikeExchange team-mates in the final group of seven riders out in front.The 25-year-old had time to sit up and celebrate at the line even as Sagan made a desperate bid to snatch the win, and the Tinkoff rider had to settle for an all-too-familiar second place.Team Skys Chris Froome finished safely in the peloton almost 10 minutes behind Matthews to retain the yellow jersey.Matthews has now won stages in all three Grand Tours. Its unbelievable, its just sinking in, Matthews said.I was close to giving in at this race after crashes in recent years. I thought maybe this race is not for me but today my dream has come true.For Sagan, it was a 17th second place in Tour de France stages, but he could console himself after reclaiming the green jersey from Mark Cavendish.The sun was shining as the race left Escaldes-Engordany, immediately onto the ascent of the Port dEnvilar, the highest point of this years Tour.Several breaks tried to get away on the way up but it was Lampre-Meridas Rui Costa who crested the summit alone before they tackled a long descent made treacherous by thick fog.That made it difficult for the riders to keep tabs on what their rivals were up to, and Froome admitted he had to pay particularly close attention to Movistars Nairo Quintana.The Colombian, who is 23 seconds down in fourth place overall, attacked when snow caused poor visibility on the Stelvio during thhe 2014 Giro dItalia -- a race he went on to win. Wholesale Custom Hornets Shirts. Descending in that mist and not being able to see much of what was going on, I imagine it felt a little bit like riding in the Giro a few years ago when Nairo slipped off the front, Froome said.I was just trying to keep an eye on him.As they dropped back into France from Andorra a 15-man break assembled, with Sagan, Giro dItalia winner Vincenzo Nibali, and stage seven winner Steve Cummings among their number.With that opening climb out of the way, the rest of the stage was largely flat but light rain fell as the break pulled almost seven minutes clear.As they neared Revel the break split in two, with Sagan going clear along with Sam Dumoulin (AG2r La Mondiale), Greg van Avermaet (BMC), Edvald Boasson Hagen (Dimension Data) and Orica-BikeExchange trio Matthews, Daryl Impey and Luke Durbridge.Inside the last 15km, the peloton eased up to allow the breakaway their fun and it became a battle between the front seven.Sagan led them over the short category three climb, the Cote de Saint Ferreol, seven kilometres from the finish before Durbridge, having done his turn for his team-mates, dropped back.Van Avermaet was the first to light it up on the home straight but as the others responded it was Matthews who found the burst of speed to break clear.It was never the plan to go for a breakaway today, Matthews added.We wanted a bunch sprint finish but were such a strong group of guys. Durbridge and Impey gave me everything to win today. I have no words to describe what they did for me. ' ' '
