Jones' OT goal lifts Avs in regular-season finale

DENVER (AP) - David Jones knocked in a rebound during a power play 3:57 into overtime and the Colorado Avalanche finished the regular season on a winning note by beating the Edmonton Oilers 4-3 on Sunday.

The game marked the farewell performance of Avalanche captain Adam Foote, who announced Friday that he was retiring after 19 seasons in the NHL, all but two with the Avalanche-Quebec Nordiques franchise.

Foote, 39, a hard-hitting defenseman, was acknowledged with a rousing ovation from the crowd after he thanked fans for their support in a clip from his goodbye news conference that was shown during a break in the first period.
