Avalanche Vs. Oilers Final Score: Edmonton Prevails 3-2

The Edmonton Oilers went up 2-0 in the first period against the Colorado Avalanche on Tuesday, and they never looked back. The Avs dropped their third straight game with a 3-2 loss to the Oilers at Rexall Place. The loss drops Colorado to 26-24-2, while Edmonton improves to 19-26-5.

Colorado out-shot the Oilers 33-23, but Edmonton goalie Devan Dubnyk was up for the task. Colorado also out-hit Edmonton 30-19, though the Oilers won the faceoff battle 29-21.

Colorado's Gabriel Landeskog scored his 11th goal of the season in the third period to cut the score to 2-3. That's as close as the Avalanche would get, as Dubnyk made several key saves late to secure the win.

Edmonton drew first blood when Jordan Eberle beat Semyon Varlamov to scor his 19th goal of the season. The Oilers would go up 2-0 before the period ended when Eric Belanger scored a power play goal, his second of the season, off assists from Ryan Whitney, Ryan Jones.

Colorado's lone other score came early in the second period when Peter Mueller found the back of the net off assists from Chuck Kobasew and Paul Stastny.
