NHL: Dallas 3, Colorado 1

Nov. 28, 2011 at 11:52 PM   |   Comments

DENVER, Nov. 28 (UPI) -- Andrew Raycroft made 35 saves Monday and the Dallas Stars snapped a four-game road losing streak with a 3-1 win over Colorado.

Raycroft -- pressed into service when starting goalie Kari Lehtonen was lost to a groin injury -- responded with a strong performance, especially in the second period when turned aside all 16 shots he saw.

Raycroft broke a seven-game personal losing streak and backstopped the Stars to only their third win in 10 games.

Eric Nystrom's first-period goal stood up until less than 6 minutes were left in regulation, when Michael Ryder netted an insurance tally.

Ryder added an empty-netter and Loui Eriksson contributed a pair of assists.

Kevin Porter scored and Semyon Varlamov made 32 saves for the Avalanche, which fell to 2-3 on an eight-game homestand.
