Recap: Dallas vs. Colorado

Dallas, TX (SportsNetwork.com) - Maxime Talbot scored in the 11th round of the shootout as the Colorado Avalanche rallied to beat the Dallas Stars 3-2 at American Airlines Center.

Talbot skated in wide and fired the puck past Kari Lehtonen and in off the left post.

Colorado wasted six chances to win the shootout and was down to its last shot twice.

Semyon Varlamov made 30 saves for the Avalanche, who erased a 2-0 third-period deficit with goals from Ryan O'Reilly and Tyson Barrie, the latter coming with 20 seconds remaining.

Colorado improved to 9-3-3 in its last 15 games.

Patrick Eaves and Erik Cole scored in regulation for Dallas, which was aiming to extend its winning streak to three games. Lehtonen stopped 22 shots, including eight in overtime.

The Avalanche began their comeback following a faceoff win in the Stars zone. Brad Stuart ripped a one-timer from the point that sailed wide of the net. O'Reilly collected the carom off the end boards and put the puck past Lehtonen at 6:12 of the third.

With Varlamov on the bench, Barrie fired a slap shot through a Dennis Everberg screen and between the legs of Lehtonen.

Eaves opened the scoring on a power play 6:47 into the game, and an awful giveaway by Nate Guenin led to Ales Hemsky feeding Cole with 52 seconds to play in the second period.

Game Notes

The Avalanche are 7-1-0 against the Stars since the start of last season ... Cole returned to the lineup after missing three games with an upper-body injury ... Dallas has scored on the power play in four straight games.
