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

This team has been a real treat to say you've been the head coach of them. I'm extremely proud of this group ... after the disappointment of (the Game 6 loss) is digested, it's always a lot easier as a coach when your team has emptied its tank, and that team emptied its tank for me for three months.

— Senators coach Dave Cameron after getting eliminated in the first round by the Canadiens
