DALLAS - Colton Sceviour scored a tiebreaking goal at 17:08 of the third period and the Dallas Stars edged the Colorado Avalanche 3-2 Tuesday.

A rebound of a Colorado shot bounced out to Rich Peverley, who put a pass on Sceviour's stick for a breakaway against Avalanche goalie Jean-Sebastien Giguere, who made 25 saves.

Ray Whitney scored two goals for Dallas.

Matt Duchene put in a rebound of Erik Johnson's shot for a power-play goal just 2:37 into the game. Dallas' Ryan Garbutt was serving a double minor for high-sticking.

Johnson's goal at 10:20 of the second period came when the teams were skating 4 on 4, with the Stars' Antoine Roussel off for roughing and unsportsmanlike conduct.

Whitney's second-period goal that tied the game 2-2 was Dallas' second power-play goal at home in 49 opportunities this season.

The two teams played on Monday night in Denver and Colorado won 6-2.
