Dallas, Sunday, 6 p.m., Pepsi Center

Five takeaways:

1 Stand-up guy. Nikita Zadorov didn’t quickly take his equipment off and dodge reporters after what he admitted was a poor performance on his part. He sat at his locker stall and blamed both goals-against, and the loss, on himself. Hockey is a team game, as we all know, but those who respect the game have to respect how Zadorov handled himself.

2. Road warriors. New Jersey improved to 9-2-2 outside New Jersey, the best road record in the league. Colorado, meanwhile, drops to 8-3-1 at home, including 1-2 in its last three games at the Pepsi Center. The Avs have scored just five regulation goals in their three-game homestand.
