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.

Quote of the Day

There's no discouragement in that room. There's no issues there at all to be honest with you. It's more about, 'Hey, it's opportunities for players.' And if we become that bad of a team because of one player, it's not a real good sign for our hockey club. So this is part of sports. It's part of hockey.
