DALLAS, Nov. 20 (UPI) -- Kevin Porter's goal in the fifth round of a shootout Saturday boosted the Colorado Avalanche to a 4-3 triumph over Dallas.

Porter's wrist shot eluded goaltender Kari Lehtonen on the blocker side after Steve Ott had fired a slapper off the crossbar in the top of the fifth round for the Stars.
