DALLAS (AP) - Loui Eriksson scored his second goal of the night at 3:55 of overtime as the Dallas Stars beat the Colorado Avalanche 7-6 Friday night.
With the game tied at 6, Eriksson's got his eighth goal of the season as his centering pass deflected in off Avalanche defenseman Erik Johnson.
Matt Duchene put Colorado in front 6-5 at 8:22 of the third period with his third goal of the night and first career hat trick. Duchene's shot from the low slot glanced into the net off Stars goaltender Kari Lehtonen's arm.
However, Jamie Benn's deflection with 4:10 left in the third tied the score.
Vernon Fiddler, Sheldon Souray, Alex Goligoski and Eric Nystrom also scored for the Stars.
Daniel Winnik, Jay McClement and Paul Stastny had the Avalanche's other goals.
