EDMONTON, Alberta (AP) -Ryan Potulny and Patrick O'Sullivan scored third-period goals and the Edmonton Oilers overcame a two-goal deficit to beat the Colorado Avalanche 6-4 on Wednesday night.

After Sam Gagner pulled the Oilers within one with 16 seconds left in the second period, Potulny tied it on a power play at 2:45 of the third. O'Sullivan gave Edmonton a 5-4 lead with 8:53 remaining, and Alex Hemsky added an empty-net goal.

Shawn Horcoff and Gilbert Brule also scored for Edmonton. The Oilers (9-10-3) ended a four-game losing streak with their third victory in their last 13 games.

Milan Hejduk scored twice for Colorado (13-6-3) during the first period, his ninth and 10th goals of the season. The veteran forward now leads the Avs in goals and ranks third on the club with 17 points. David Jones and Kyle Cumiskey added goals for Colorado. The Avalanche has lost four of its last five games.

NOTES: The Oilers, 7-3-1 at Rexall Place, opened a five-game homestand. ... Chris Durno earned his first NHL point with an assist on Hejduk's second goal. ... Colorado will finish its three-game trip in Vancouver on Friday night.
