Colorado Avalanche 2, Dallas Stars 5

DALLAS (AP) - Rookie Colton Sceviour had two goals, rookie Jordie Benn scored the tiebreaker in the first minute of the third period, and the Dallas Stars beat the Colorado Avalanche 5-2 on Thursday night in a preseason game.

Benn, older brother of Stars forward Jamie Benn, beat goaltender Trevor Cann from the slot 22 seconds into the third period to snap a 2-all tie.

Loui Eriksson and Steve Ott added third-period goals for the Stars (2-0) in their preseason home opener and coach Glen Gulutzan's home debut.

Gulutzan was promoted from the Stars' top minor league affiliate to replace Marc Crawford, who was fired at the end of last season.

Rookies Tyson Barrie and Brad Malone scored for Colorado (0-1) in its preseason opener.

The Avalanche left most of their veterans in Denver so their top prospects could get extra ice time. The Stars used more veterans, but their lineup also included seven prospects.

Dallas took four penalties in the game's first five minutes - three on Jamie Benn - and Barrie capitalized off a 5 on 3 at 6:41.

Sceviour tied it at 1 for Dallas at 10:11 of the opening period, and Sceviour poked a loose puck past goaltender Calvin Pickard at 9:18 of the second period to put the Stars in front.

Stars No. 1 goaltender Kari Lehtonon stopped 16 of 17 shots and he was replaced by rookie Jack Campbell midway through the second period.

Malone drew Colorado even at 2 at 12:09 of the second, beating Campbell from the left circle on the power play.
