Colton Sceviour scored a tiebreaking goal at 17:08 of the third period to help the Dallas Stars edge 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.
Colorado’s 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 Stars repaid Colorado for Monday night’s 6-2 blowout loss in Denver.
Giguere saved 13 Stars shots in the second period, but Whitney tied the score 2-2 at 17:19 with his second goal of the game. Alex Chiasson passed from behind the goal line to Whitney, who one-timed a shot from the right circle.
The Stars missed two shots at an open net near the end of the game when Colorado went with six skaters for a little more than a minute. The Avalanche swarmed around Dallas goalie Dan Ellis, who also had 25 saves, but were unable to put the puck past him.
