NHL: Colorado 2, Dallas 1

Jan. 14, 2012 at 7:05 PM   |   Comments

DALLAS, Jan. 14 (UPI) -- Paul Stastny scored the decisive goal during a third-period power play Saturday, staking the Colorado Avalanche to a 2-1 decision over Dallas.

Stastny tipped Erik Johnson's long wrist shot past Stars goalie Kari Lehtonen 10:35 into the final frame and Colorado hung on to snap an 0-2-1 skid.

Stastny also assisted on a first-period tally by David Jones and Jean-Sebastien Giguere turned aside 21 shots for the Avalanche.

Giguere weathered a hectic final minute as the Stars closed the game on a power play and pulled their goalie for a sixth attacker, but failed to produce the equalizer.

The Avalanche improved to an NHL-best 16-5-2 in one-goal games this season.

Lehtonen made 21 saves for Dallas.
