O'Reilly's 2nd goal of games gives Avalanche 4-3 overtime win against Kings

DENVER - Ryan O'Reilly scored two goals, including a short-handed tally 45 seconds into overtime, and the Avalanche earned a 4-3 NHL preseason victory over the Los Angeles Kings on Friday night for Patrick Roy's first win as Colorado's coach.

The Avalanche rallied after Dwight King's power-play goal at 38 seconds of the third period made it 3-1.

Steve Downie lifted the puck over sprawled goalie Martin Jones for a power-play goal at 3:20. O'Reilly made it 3-3 at 9:37 when he put in his rebound after taking a pass from Matt Duchene, who had three assists.

In overtime, O'Reilly spun around a defender near the net before knocking in a backhander for the winner.

The Avalanche took a 1-0 lead 26 seconds in on Andre Benoit's goal, but the Kings answered 25 seconds later on a power-play tally by Justin Williams.

Williams also assisted on a goal by Nick Shore, a former University of Denver star.

Quote of the Day

Your team is going to want to recapture the feeling. What they're going to have to figure out is they're going to have to rewrite the story. Because you're going to rewrite the story doesn't mean you want a different end. It's just that you're going to have to learn that there's different challenges to get there, and if you're going to try and tap the same feeling, it ain't going to happen.
