Sceviour scores 3 goals, Benn has 2 in Stars' 5-3 win over Avalanche

DENVER - Colton Sceviour scored three goals, Jamie Benn added two and the Dallas Stars beat the Colorado Avalanche 5-3 in a preseason game Tuesday night.

Sceviour and Benn scored two goals apiece in the second period, with Sceviour's second goal at 9:44 giving the Stars a 4-0 lead and prompting Colorado to pull goalie Jean-Sebastian Giguere in favour of Sami Aittokallio.

Gabriel Landeskog answered for Colorado with 2:11 left in the middle period, and Brad Malone and Paul Stastny followed with goals in the third period to get the Avalanche within 4-3.

Sceviour added an empty-net goal with 1:40 left in the game. Kari Lehtonen stopped 26 shots for the Stars.

Giguere stopped six shots and Aittokallio saved all 15 shots he faced.
