NHL: Stars make Avalanche pay for their indiscipline and win 7 to 4

Denver, Col. – Tyler Seguin scored twice, Thomas Harley had three assists in the big offense, and the Dallas Stars made the Colorado Avalanche pay for their lack of discipline, winning 7 to 4 on Sunday night.

Dallas, which leads the Western Conference with 107 points, has a five-point priority over Colorado and the Vancouver Canucks.

Matt Duchene, Jimmy Benn, Roope Hintz, Mason Marchment and Whit Johnston are the scorers for the Stars, who won their first game in four duels against the Avalanche (1-2-1) this season.

Jake Ottinger stopped 34 balls in the win, while Dallas showed no signs of fatigue, one day after its 3-2 loss to the Chicago Blackhawks.

The team even had to stay in Chicago a few hours longer due to strong winds in the Denver area.

The team took a 5-2 lead into the second period thanks to three straight power-play goals, and the Stars watched Jonathan Drouin cut the deficit to one goal with 9:45 remaining in the final period.

But Johnston responded quickly to the Quebec team's goal, scoring his thirty-first goal this season at the expense of Alexander Georgiev.

Seguin added a goal in an abandoned cage with 8.7 seconds left.

Sean Walker, Artturi Lehkonen and Brandon Duhaime were the other scorers for Colorado, which had to do without Mikko Rantanen. The latter suffers from symptoms resulting from the concussion.

Two days after allowing the Edmonton Oilers six goals on 47 shots, Georgiev has given up six goals on 36 shots.

The Avalanche have a record that might seem alarming at home, with an unusual record of 2-4-1 in their last seven games at Ball Arena.

Jared Bednar's team is trying to fend off the attack of the Winnipeg Jets, who are just two points behind Central.

Nathan MacKinnon assisted on two teammates for a total of 133 points (48 goals, 85 assists). He is six points away from tying Peter Stastny (139, 1981-82) for the most points in franchise history.

The Stars will conclude their regular schedule with four consecutive games in front of their fans, starting on Tuesday against Buffalo.

For their part, the Avalanche will have a visit from the Minnesota Wild that same day.
