Sceviour scores late in 3rd period and Stars slip past Avalanche for 3-2 victory

DALLAS - Colton Sceviour scored a tiebreaking goal at 17:08 of the third period and the Dallas Stars edged the Colorado Avalanche 3-2 Tuesday.

A rebound of a Colorado shot bounced out to Rich Peverley, who put a pass on Sceviour's stick for a breakaway against Avalanche goalie Jean-Sebastien Giguere, who made 25 saves.

Ray Whitney scored two goals for Dallas.

Matt Duchene put in a rebound of Erik Johnson's shot for a power-play goal just 2:37 into the game. Dallas' Ryan Garbutt was serving a double minor for high-sticking.

Johnson's goal at 10:20 of the second period came when the teams were skating 4 on 4, with the Stars' Antoine Roussel off for roughing and unsportsmanlike conduct.

Whitney's second-period goal that tied the game 2-2 was Dallas' second power-play goal at home in 49 opportunities this season.

The two teams played on Monday night in Denver and Colorado won 6-2.

Quote of the Day

When we started our journey we made a commitment to our fans to be relevant and to see the Chicago Blackhawks become the best professional hockey organization. There are not two finer symbols of that than Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane. The commitment we have made to these incredible young men is equal to the commitment they have made to our team, our fans, our entire organization and the city of Chicago.
