Tanguay scores winner in third period and Avalanche defeat Stars 4-3

DALLAS - Alex Tanguay scored the winning goal early in the third period, and Semyon Varlamov made it stand up for the Colorado Avalanche in a 4-3 victory over the Dallas Stars on Monday night.

Colorado led twice, but both times Tyler Seguin scored to tie the game for Dallas. Seguin, the Stars' leader with 23 goals, had not scored in 13 games. He also had an assist on Jamie Benn's first-period goal.

Varlamov made 41 saves, including two on Seguin during a third-period power play with the score 4-3. Varlamov has four consecutive wins against Dallas.

Colorado's Nathan MacKinnon scored on the game's first shot. Jamie McGinn also scored in the first period, and Paul Stastny connected on a power play in the second.

Quote of the Day

I don’t know if it was more relief for me that [Stamkos] scored or the power play scored. It was a whole compilation of Alka Seltzer.
