David Jones scored his second goal of the game at 2:52 of overtime, lifting the Colorado Avalanche to a 4-3 victory over the visiting Vancouver Canucks on Tuesday.
Milan Hejduk and defenseman John-Michael Liles each registered a goal and two assists while Craig Anderson made 40 saves for the Avalanche, who went 3-for-5 with the man advantage in defeating the Canucks for the first time in five meetings this season.
With Vancouver captain Henrik Sedin in the penalty box for interference, Jones slipped a loose puck past Roberto Luongo from the doorstep to complete his third two-goal effort of the campaign and give Colorado its third win in four games.
Vancouver took a 2-1 lead on the strength of its second-ranked power play as defenseman Alex Edler cashed in at 2:43 of the first period with a slap shot and Ryan Kesler converted a chance midway through the second. In between, Colorado got a man-advantage goal of its own from Liles with 4:19 remaining in the first.
Jones knotted the game less than three minutes after Kesler's tally before the teams traded scores late in the second.
Playing in his seventh National Hockey League game, Vancouver's Sergei Shirokov recorded his first career goal with 1:45 to play, but Hejduk netted his fourth in five games on the power play 63 seconds later to forge a 3-3 tie.
Kesler and Edler each notched an assist and Luongo stopped 26 shots for Vancouver, which has lost three of four following a 14-0-3 run.
