Colorado Avalanche 3, Edmonton Oilers 2
Marek Svatos scored the game-winner at the 10:33 mark of the second period as the Avalanche defeated the Edmonton Oilers by a 3-2 count in Colorado’s final game of a four-contest road swing.

Karlis Skrastins opened the scoring with his first goal of the season at the 6:43 mark of the first period. Ryan Smyth corralled a loose puck on the right boards and cut to the middle before dropping a pass to Skrastins in the slot, who fired a slap shot past Edmonton netminder Mathieu Garon.

Shawn Horcoff evened the game before the first intermission with a power-play goal at 16:31.

Milan Hejduk then gave the Avs a 2-1 advantage at the 6:35 mark of the middle frame when he tipped home a John-Michael Liles point shot only four seconds after an Edmonton penalty had expired.

Ales Hemsky’s goal at 7:16 again evened the game for the Oilers before Svatos notched the game-winner just over four minutes later.

The Avalanche defense held Edmonton to just 16 shots on the evening.

Peter Budaj made 14 saves for Colorado, including seven in the final period, to earn the victory.
