DENVER (AP) - Brett Clark scored with 3:12 left in overtime to lift the Colorado Avalanche past the Phoenix Coyotes 5-4 Tuesday night.
Ryan Smyth had a goal and three assists to match his career high with four points. Paul Stastny and John-Michael Liles also had three points and Andrew Raycroft made 19 saves in winning his fourth start in a row.
Shane Doan had two goals, Olli Jokinen had a goal and two assists and Ilja Bryzgalov made 43 saves. Ed Jovanovski and Ken Klee had two assists each for the Coyotes, who lost for the second straight night.
Clark, whose interference penalty led to the game-tying goal, atoned by scoring his second goal of the season on his 32nd birthday.
The Coyotes rallied from a 4-2 deficit to send the game to overtime. Doan made it 4-3 with 4:07 left, and then tied it with his second goal of the night and 16th of the season with 48 seconds to play.
Smyth followed with his 11th goal of the season to give Colorado a 4-2 lead.
Colorado took a 2-1 lead when Smyth made a diving centering feed to a streaking Milan Hejduk, who poked his 13th goal past Bryzgalov with 12:53 left in the second period.
Jokinen tied made it 2-all on a rebound with 13:12 left in regulation.
The Avalanche, which began a stretch of 15 home games in 19, controlled the play for most of the game. They outshot the Coyotes 48-23.
The Coyotes took a 1-0 lead when Joakim Lindstrom's high slapshot from the top of the left circle went off Raycroft's glove 4:39 into the game.
Colorado regrouped after its slow start to dominate the first period, outshooting the Coyotes 17-4.
The Avalanche tied it a little more than seven minutes later when Stastny roofed a rebound with 8:01 left in the period for his 10th goal of the season.
Colorado had a goal disallowed with 6:56 left in the first when replays showed the puck didn't completely cross the goal line.
Notes: The win was Colorado's 200th at the Pepsi Center. The Avalanche played their first four seasons in Denver at McNichols Arena before the Pepsi Center opened in 1999. ... Hejduk has 298 career goals. ... Bryzgalov lost for the first time in seven starts. He is 4-1-2 in that stretch.
