DALLAS (AP) -- Paul Stastny's second goal of the game 3:36 into overtime gave the Colorado Avalanche and troubled goalie Semyon Varlamov a 3-2 victory over the Dallas Stars on Friday night.
Stastny fired a shot from the left circle past goalie Kari Lehtonen to beat the Stars, who had rallied from a 2-0 deficit. The goal was his fourth of the season.
Dallas had scored twice in the third period against Varlamov, who two days earlier spent the night in jail because of an alleged assault against his girlfriend.
The Stars, who recorded just 12 shots on goal in the first two periods, began their comeback with Alex Goligoski's goal at 3:57 of the third period. Tyler Seguin tied it at 16:31.
Stastny had made it 1-0 at 8:22 of the first period. Gabriel Landeskog doubled Colorado's lead with 1:19 left in the second period.
