Islanders Vs. Avalanche Final Score: Colorado Wins 2nd Home Game With 4-3 Overtime Victory Over New York

After being down 3-0 late in the second period to the New York Islanders, the Colorado Avalanche scored three unanswered goals in regulation to force overtime. In the extra frame, Kyle Quincey shot the puck past Al Montoya to win the game, 4-3 (though at one point David Jones had been credited with the goal as a result of a deflection). This is just the Avalanche's second home victory this season, improving to 2-5.

At 1:53 into overtime, Islanders goalie Al Montoya was called for high-sticking, sending Brian Rolston to serve the penalty in the box. Forty-six seconds later Kyle Quincey fired off a shot right in front of Montoya and saw David Jones deflect it in for his sixth goal of the season and the win.

Paul Stastny scored the first Avalanche goal with 21 seconds left in the second period on a 5-on-3 power play. Milan Hejduk and Jan Hejda accounted for the other two Avalanche goals. Josh Bailey, Brian Rolston and Michael Grabner had the Islanders' goals.

The Avalanche managed to get 51 shots on Al Montoya's net while Jean-Sebastien Giguere faced 33 shots for his third win of the season.

Colorado (8-7-1, 17 points) resumes play on Saturday with a home game against the Calgary Flames.
