Avs win preseason opener

DENVER (AP) - Marek Svatos and Ryan Stoa scored goals in the second period, and Wojtek Wolski added another in the third as the Colorado Avalanche beat the Dallas Stars 3-1 on Thursday night.

Brendan Morrow scored for the Stars, who were playing their second preseason game in as many nights. Dallas beat Tampa Bay 4-3 in a shootout on Wednesday.

The new-look Avalanche opened the preseason without Joe Sakic, who announced his retirement July 9, and with a rookie head coach, Joe Sacco.
