Lindell, Stars rally past Avalanche in OT


DENVER — Esa Lindell scored at 1:54 of overtime, and the Dallas Stars rallied for a 3-2 win against the Colorado Avalanche at Pepsi Center on Tuesday.

Lindell scored from the high slot with a low shot past Philipp Grubauer‘s glove. 

Ben Bishop made 41 saves for the Stars (27-15-4), who have won seven of their past eight games and went 4-0-0 against Colorado this season.

Nathan MacKinnon had two assists, and Grubauer made 27 saves for the Avalanche (25-15-6), who have lost four straight games (0-2-2) and nine of their past 12 (3-6-3).

Denis Gurianov cut it to 2-1 at 9:54 of the second period, taking a pass from Roope Hintz in the right circle and scoring under the arm of Grubauer on the power play.

Jason Dickinson tied 2-2 at 14:37 of the third period after getting his own rebound. 

Nikita Zadorov gave Colorado a 1-0 lead at 9:04 of the first period when his pass to the slot redirected five-hole on Bishop off the stick of Stars defenseman Miro Heiskanen.

Gabriel Landeskog made it 2-0 at 15:27 on a deflection of MacKinnon’s point shot.

Alexander Radulov appeared to cut it to 2-1 with a power-play goal at 6:02 of the second, but Avalanche coach Jared Bednar challenged the play, and the call was reversed after a video review determined Jamie Benn was offside.
