GLENDALE, Ariz. Swingman Walt Frazier Jersey . -- The Colorado Avalanche knew they would get a fight from the Phoenix Coyotes, one of the NHLs best rallying teams. But when the Coyotes pushed, the Avalanche pushed right back. Ryan OReilly scored a power-play goal with 41 seconds left in overtime and Colorado bounced back after allowing two third-period goals to beat Phoenix 4-3 on Thursday night. "Thats (fighting back) what good teams do and what we have to learn," Colorado LW Gabriel Landeskog said. "Its just about finding ways to win and thats what we did." Colorado had been the NHLs best team at holding a lead and entered the third period up 2-1 on goals by Andre Benoit and John Mitchell. Coming off a four-day break, Phoenix turned up the pressure in the third period and went ahead 3-2 on goals by Martin Hanzal and Antoine Vermette four minutes apart. The Avalanche fought back, though, tying it with 3:14 left in regulation on a whirling backhander by Cody McLeod that found its way through Mike Smiths pads. OReilly ended it in overtime, sending a wrist shot past Smith for his ninth goal of the season and Colorados seventh win in nine road games. "This is a very good team, probably one of the best in the NHL and I thought our guys did a good job of coming here and winning that game," Avalanche coach Patrick Roy said. Phoenix dictated play most of the way, spending long stretches in Colorados zone and sending 44 shots at Avalanche goalie Semyon Varlamov. The Coyotes fell behind 2-0 despite dominating early and fought back late, but were hurt by two late penalties: One by Hanzal that carried over into overtime and another by Keith Yandle that set up Colorados winning power play. Michael Stone also scored and Shane Doan extended his points streak to seven games with an assist on Vermettes goal for the Coyotes, who remain unbeaten in regulation at home (9-0-2). "I thought we did a lot of good things in that game, thought we controlled a lot of the play, had upward of 75 scoring chances," Coyotes coach Dave Tippett said. "But in a tight game, mistakes matter and when you put a team on the power play twice in overtime, it usually comes back to bite you and it did." Two of the NHLs highest-scoring teams needed a little while to get rolling, playing a scoreless first period. Phoenix had some good chances in the opening 20 minutes, but couldnt get any of its 15 shots past Varlamov. Colorado needed 32 seconds of the second period and six seconds of a power play to break the scoreless tie. Mitchell got it, ending up with the puck between the circles after a face-off and whipping it past Smith for his fourth goal of the season. That didnt bode well for the Coyotes; Colorado entered the game as the only NHL team that hadnt lost after the first period at 13-0. Paul Stastny nearly added to it midway through the period, but Smith made a spectacular save, sliding to his right then stacking his pads to glove the one-timer. Benoit did get one past Smith later in the period on a shot from the point that hit the crossbar and trickled in after hitting the goalies back. Benoit was hit in the face early in the period, but returned with a bandage on his chin to score for the first time since last April. Stone finally got the Coyotes on the board with a long-distance goal, beating Varlamov with a hard shot from just inside the red line that caromed in off the left post for his seventh of the season. The Coyotes thought they had it tied 5 minutes into the third period when Oliver Ekman-Larsson beat Varlamov from the left circle, but it was waved off because David Moss knocked the Avalanche goalie over after a shove by Colorados Jan Hejda. Phoenix kept up the pressure and Hanzal tied midway through the period, lifting a loose rebound over a prone Varlamov. Vermette scored on a power play, but the lead lasted less than three minutes before McLeod tied it to send the game to overtime. OReilly ended it as the clock wound down in overtime, scoring on Colorados second power-play chance in the extra period. "We got ourselves back in the game, but its unfortunate we took the two penalties to give them a chance to win it," Tippett said. The Avalanche made the most of it, winning for the 16th time in 21 games this season. NOTES: Ekman-Larsson played his 200th career game. ... The Avalanche have allowed an NHL-low nine first-period goals this season. ... The Coyotes placed D Zbynek Michalek on injured reserve on Thursday with a lower-body injury. ... Colorado leading scorer Matt Duchene missed his second straight game with an oblique injury. Derrick Rose Jersey . Ricciardos exclusion from the results tarnished what had been a day of celebration for local fans, who were jubilant that the Red Bull driver had apparently become the first Australian to finish on the podium at his home race. However just before midnight, stewards ruled that Ricciardos car had "exceeded consistently the maximum allowed fuel flow" and that the team refused an instruction from the races technical delegate Charlie Whiting to change the fuel-flow sensor before the race and a further request during the race to reduce the fuel flow. Derrick Rose Knicks Jersey . What was the first big story that you broke?Every breaking story has meaning which is why trade deadline day and free agent frenzy have maintained both news and entertainment value.Uniondale, NY (SportsNetwork.com) - The New York Islanders activated forward Cal Clutterbuck from injured reserve on Wednesday. Clutterbuck suffered a skate laceration to his right thigh during a Sept. 17 preseason game against the Calgary Flames. The 25-year-old Ontario native was signed to a four-year deal worth a reported $11 million in early July after being acquired from Minnesota in a draft-day trade that sent prospect Nino Niederreiter to the Wild. CClutterbuck had just four goals and six assists in 42 games with Minnesota last season, two years removed from setting career-high marks in 2010-11 with 19 goals and 15 assists. Charles Oakley Jersey. To make room for Clutterbuck, the Islanders returned defenseman Griffin Reinhart to the Edmonton Oil Kings of the Western Hockey League. Reinhart, 19, appeared in four exhibition games with the Islanders this preseason and notched one goal and one assist.
