Avs rally from 3-0 deficit to win in overtime

DENVER (AP) - Kyle Quincey scored a power-play goal 2:39 into overtime and Jean-Sebastien Giguere made 30 saves, helping the Colorado Avalanche rally from a three-goal deficit and beat the slumping New York Islanders 4-3 on Thursday night.

With the Avalanche on the advantage following a high-sticking penalty against goalie Al Montoya, Quincey's sent a shot in from near the blue line.

Paul Stastny, Milan Hejduk and Jan Hejda added goals for the Avalanche, who snapped a four-game losing streak.

Josh Bailey, Brian Rolston and Michael Grabner scored for the Islanders, who led 3-0 until the final minute of the second period.
