Avalanche escape Phoenix with OT victory
Glendale, AZ (SportsNetwork.com) - Ryan O'Reilly's power-play tally with 41.1 seconds remaining in overtime lifted Colorado over Phoenix, 4-3, on Thursday.
Antoine Vermette gave the hosts a 4-3 edge with 5:54 on the clock, but the visitors struck back with Cody McLeod's score at 16:46 to send the game to the extra session.
Once there, the Avs failed to convert the final 1:32 of a charging call to Martin Hanzal, but ended the game after Keith Yandle was sent off for slashing with 1:35 to play in OT.
PA Parenteau slid a pass into the right circle, where O'Reilly beat Mike Smith to the far side.
