Stars squander two-goal lead, fall to Avalanche

For the second straight game the Dallas Stars got off to an early lead, but this time around they couldn’t finish the deal. The Stars lost leads of 2-0 and 3-2 Wednesday night in Denver and ended up falling, 4-3, to the Colorado Avalanche.

“It’s pretty disappointing,” said Stars defenseman Trevor Daley. “We’ve got to find ways to play complete games. When you’ve got a two-goal lead you’ve got to find ways to put teams away.”

Added Stars coach Glen Gulutzan: “I think we played well enough to win and then invented a way to lose.”

Wednesday’s game was the fourth time this season the Stars have had a two-goal lead in a game and gone on to lose. Twice the loss has come in regulation.

“You have to learn it. That’s the only way you can do it. We have a lot of young guys here that have to learn through this,” said Stars forward Jaromir Jagr. “I don’t think we are realizing it’s a playoff game for us every game from now on. I don’t think we play it like a playoff game. We play it like game number four at the start of the season. We cannot do that if we want to make the playoffs. “

The loss was the fourth in the last six games (1-4-1) for the Stars, who fell to 13-13-3 and dropped to three points out of eighth place in the Western Conference.
