DALLAS (AP) - Paul Stastny scored the tiebeaking goal on a power play at 10:35 of the third period to help the Colorado Avalanche beat the Dallas Stars 2-1 on Saturday.
Stastny deflected teammate Erik Johnson's shot past goalie Kari Lehtonen 13 seconds after Dallas' Steve Ott went to the penalty box for hooking.
David Jones also scored, and Jean-Sebastien Giguere stopped 21 shots for the Avalanche. Colorado rebounded from a 3-2 overtime loss in Nashville on Thursday night that dropped them to 0-2-1 in their last three. They are 10-3-1 in their last 14.
Vernon Fiddler scored for Dallas, and Lehtonen made 21 saves.
