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

I have been blessed to play for 16 years in the NHL; it has been an amazing ride. I would like to thank the Tampa Bay Lightning and New York Rangers organizations and owners for providing me the opportunity to play the sport I love for so many years. I could have never played for so long or accomplished all that I have without the unwavering love and support from my wife, Heather, our three sons, Ryan, Lucas, and Mason, and my parents.

— Martin St. Louis after announcing his retirement from the NHL on Thursday
