Ryan O'Reilly scored a power-play goal with 41 seconds left in overtime and the Colorado Avalanche bounced back after allowing two third-period goals to beat the Phoenix Coyotes 4-3 on Thursday night.

Colorado had been the NHL's best team at holding a lead and entered the third period up 2-1 on goals by Andre Benoit and John Mitchell.

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 Smith's pads.

O'Reilly ended it in overtime, sending a wrist shot past Smith for his ninth goal of the season.
