Olver's 3 points, Kobasew's late goal lift Colorado past Dallas 4-3

DENVER - Chuck Kobasew's goal with 3:29 left in the third period rallied the Colorado Avalanche past the Dallas Stars 4-3 on Wednesday night.

Mark Olver had a goal and two assists and Ryan O'Reilly and Gabriel Landeskog also had goals for the Avalanche, who stopped a four-game skid.

The Avalanche got the winner when Matt Hunwick's shot from the boards hit Dallas defenceman Stephane Robidas in the face and dropped to the ice. Kobasew quickly knocked it in with a backhand to stop Colorado's four-game skid.

Jaromir Jagr scored a goal and had two assists, and Trevor Daley and Ray Whitney also scored for the Stars.

Quote of the Day

The groove of being behind a bench is going to be interesting at first, but thank God we have a few exhibition games to get rid of those cobwebs. Overall the excitement of it all and the freshness and coming back refreshed, all those things are going to be assets. If [the players] come ready to give their best effort in practice and games, good things are going to happen. I'm always looking for results. It's not always on the scoreboard. It's winning and building something.
