DALLAS - Milan Hejduk scored two goals and the Colorado Avalanche held on for a 5-4 victory over the Dallas Stars on Saturday.

Darcy Tucker, John-Michael Liles and Tyler Arnason also scored for the Avalanche (2-3-0) in their first road win of the season.

Joe Sakic and Wojtek Wolski had two assists each for Colorado.

Fabian Brunnstrom, James Neal, Loui Eriksson and Brad Richards had goals for the sluggish Stars (1-3-1). Dallas also had a late goal overturned.

Colorado took a 5-2 lead into the third period, but Dallas got close when Eriksson scored from the slot with 18 minutes left and Richards scored 4:47 later.

The Stars thought they'd pulled even at 5-5 with 7:31 left on Brenden Morrow's power-play deflection off Richards' centring pass.

But after a video review, officials ruled that the puck went in off Morrow's glove and the goal was disallowed.
