DALLAS (AP) - Antti Miettinen punched a loose puck through Peter Budaj's pads with 6:02 left to give the Dallas Stars a 5-4 victory over the Colorado Avalanche on Monday night.

Miettinen's fifth goal of the season came only two minutes after Eric Lindros stormed through the slot and took a cross-ice pass from Mike Modano to score the tying goal.

The Avalanche, who eliminated Dallas in the first round of the last two playoffs, jumped out to a 2-0 lead on two goals by Marek Svatos in the game's first seven minutes and chased goalie Marty Turco.

Stars captain Brenden Morrow scored twice in the final three minutes of the first period to tie the game 2-2. But he later left with an unspecified injury.

Morrow appeared gimpy when he came off the ice during a shift change midway through the second period. He didn't return, and the Stars said he had a ''lower body injury.''
