DENVER (AP) - David Jones scored two goals, including the winner 2:52 into overtime, and the Colorado Avalanche snapped a four-game skid against Vancouver, beating the Canucks 4-3 on Tuesday night.
John-Michael Liles and Milan Hejduk also scored for the Avalanche, who have won three of their last four games.
Jones lunged at the puck to score the decisive goal on a power play after Tomas Fleischmann sent a pass into the goal crease.
The Canucks had nearly killed off the interference penalty to Henrik Sedin before Jones knocked his 16th goal of the season.
Craig Anderson finished with 40 saves.
Alexander Edler, Ryan Kesler and Sergei Shirokov scored for the Canucks as the Western Conference leaders wrapped up a five-game road swing 2-2-1.
