DENVER (AP) - Ryan O'Reilly scored in the first round of a shootout and the Colorado Avalanche beat Philadelphia Flyers 3-2 Monday night for their sixth consecutive victory at home.
Jean-Sebastien Giguere turned away a shot by Matt Read in the shootout and had 31 saves for the Avalanche, who are 8-1 after regulation and undefeated in six shutouts.
The Flyers tied it in the final minute of regulation with their goalie pulled, on Wayne Simmonds' 10th goal of the season. He punched the puck in from up close amid heavy traffic in front of the net.
