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

For us it's a little bit different. I've never been in front of this much media. This is more than we've ever had to deal with in Tampa. I guess we're on a little bit bigger stage now. It's nice, you have to enjoy it. This doesn't happen too often.
