Stars centers Tyler Seguin and Logan Stankoven scored two goals apiece and Dallas pulled away from the Colorado Avalanche in the third period for a 4-1 win in Game 3 of their Western Conference Round 2 series.

Evgenii Dadonov found Seguin with a beautiful cross for a fast break goal in the 16th minute of the second period for what would be the difference-making goal. Seguin and Stankoven added empty-net goals in the final minutes to pad the lead.

Stankoven scored the first goal of the game with less than 90 seconds to play in the first period. His goals were the first two playoff goals of his career.

Mikko Rantanen collected a rebound and found the net from point-blank range with 10:24 left in the second period for the Avalanche’s only goal of the night.

The Avalanche outshot the Stars 12-5 in the first period, including a Nathan MacKinnon shot with five minutes left in the period that snuck through the legs of Stars goalie Jake Oettinger and came within inches of crossing the red line before Stars defenseman Ryan Suter poked it back to Oettinger's grasp.

Game 4 is Monday at Ball Arena, where the Avs posted the best home record in the regular season. Dallas was the NHL’s best team on the road.
