Late goals by Parenteau and O'Reilly rally Avalanche past Devils 2-1 in overtime

NEWARK, N.J. - Ryan O'Reilly scored a power-play goal 28 seconds into overtime and the Colorado Avalanche rallied for a 2-1 victory over the New Jersey Devils on Monday night.

The Avalanche tied the game with 1:47 left in regulation on a goal by PA Parenteau after they pulled goalie Jean-Sebastien Giguere with 2:30 remaining.

Devils defenceman Andy Greene was called for a penalty shortly after Parenteau's goal, and the man advantage carried into overtime. O'Reilly ended it by tipping Matt Duchene's pass by goalie Cory Schneider for his 21st of the season, giving Colorado its fourth straight win.

It marked the third straight game in which New Jersey has given up a late goal to force overtime. The Devils have lost their last two.

Ryan Carter scored in the first period for New Jersey.

Giguere finished with 27 saves.

Quote of the Day

The groove of being behind a bench is going to be interesting at first, but thank God we have a few exhibition games to get rid of those cobwebs. Overall the excitement of it all and the freshness and coming back refreshed, all those things are going to be assets. If [the players] come ready to give their best effort in practice and games, good things are going to happen. I'm always looking for results. It's not always on the scoreboard. It's winning and building something.
