The game-winning goal came from center Mark Oliver, who notched his first goal of the season on the second period on assists from O'Reilly and Landeskog. That goal gave the Avs a 2-0 lead, which they would never really come close to giving up. Landeskog would score on the power play midway through the second to cap the scoring for the Avs on the night, and the third goal was more than enough for Colorado.
The Avs got a fantastic game out of goalie Semyon Varlamov, who started in net on Friday night in the stead of the injured Jean-Sebastien Giguere. Varlamov, who was playing in only his third game this month, turned away 26 of Edmonton's 27 shots.
The Avs will take Saturday off before returning to the ice to take on the Winnipeg Jets.
