Talbot's short-handed goal helps Avalanche to 4-2 win over Oilers

DENVER - Maxime Talbot broke a second-period tie with a short-handed goal, and Semyon Varlamov stopped 27 shots, leading the Colorado Avalanche to a 4-2 win over the Edmonton Oilers on Thursday night.

Tyson Barrie, Ryan O'Reilly and Matt Duchene also scored for the Avalanche, who bounced back from an 8-2 loss to the Oilers two weeks ago in Edmonton.

Taylor Hall and Ryan Nugent-Hopkins had goals for the Oilers, who finished their road swing 0-4 and were outscored 14-4. They also were without Sam Gagner after he was ejected in the first period when he knocked down Paul Stastny with a stick to the face.

Edmonton pulled goalie Devan Dubnyk for an extra skater with 1:53 remaining, but couldn't score. Duchene added an empty-net goal with 1.1 seconds remaining. He also had two assists.
