GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) — Ryan O’Reilly tied it late in regulation, then had the only score in the shootout to give the lowly Colorado Avalanche a 4-3 victory over the Phoenix Coyotes on Friday night.

Shane Doan had a power-play goal and assist as the Coyotes rallied from a two-goal deficit to take a 3-2 lead, but O’Reilly scored on Colorado’s only shot of the third period to send the game into overtime.

Philippe Dupuis and Jay McClement also scored for the Avalanche in their third victory in the last 17 games, all three in shootouts. Colorado is 6-1 in shootouts this season.

Lee Stempniak and Ray Whitney also scored for Phoenix in front 15,739 on goalie Ilya Bryzgalov’s “bobblehead” night.
