NHL: Colorado 4, Minnesota 3 (SO)

logo_minnesota_wildST. PAUL, Minn., Feb. 14 (UPI) — Matt Duchene scored the tying goal late in regulation and then added the game-winner in a shootout Thursday, lifting the Colorado Avalanche over Minnesota 4-3.

Duchene’s tally with 7:18 remaining in the third period blunted a Wild comeback and enabled the Avalanche to force an extra frame.

Jean-Sebastien Giguere made a pair of saves while Milan Hejduk and Duchene bested Niklas Backstrom in the tiebreaker, allowing Colorado to break a three-game skid.

Hejduk tallied in regulation — his 800th career point — and Aaron Palushaj scored for the Avs.

Giguere made 26 saves.

Zach Parise, Michael Rupp and Mikko Koivu each scored and Backstrom made 29 stops for Minnesota.
