Colorado 4, Dallas 3

DALLAS (AP) -- Pierre Turgeon scored twice against his former
team Saturday night as Colorado beat Dallas 4-3 in the preseason
finale for both teams.

Andrew Brunette added a goal and an assist and Joe Sakic also
had two assists for Colorado (4-0-2).

Dallas (4-4-0) had 29 shots to 17 for the Avalanche.

Turgeon's second goal came on a breakaway at 9:52 in the second
period when he took a pass from Wojtek Wolski and flicked a shot
from outside the crease for a 3-2 Avalanche lead. Turgeon played
the previous three seasons in Dallas but was let go after the
lockout ended.

The goal capped a spurt of three goals in 1:15 of the second
period. Dallas' Stephane Robidas scored at 8:37 with assists from
Niko Kapanen and Bill Guerin. Robidas finished with a goal and two
assists, and Kapanen had a goal and an assist.

Robidas' goal gave Dallas a 2-1 lead, but Brunette tied it 28
seconds later. Jason Krog scored Colorado's third goal of the
period on a power play at 15:40.

Stars rookie Jussi Jokinen scored his fifth goal of the
preseason with 2:54 left in the game to draw Dallas within one.

Turgeon's first goal came on the power play at 17:10 in the
first period with assists from Sakic and Brunette.

Jere Lehtinen (groin), Jason Arnott (groin) and Brenden Morrow
(foot) were scratches for the Stars. All three are questionable for
the team's opener Wednesday against Los Angeles.
