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

After being through it and seeing the other [outdoor] games on TV, just the atmosphere is spectacular. To stand here -- and we are essentially almost on the blue line -- and look up [into the stands] and knowing it is going to be packed and playing our biggest rival in this setting is going to be pretty special.
