DENVER, Dec. 17 (UPI) -- Matt Duchene scored on a slapshot from the left circle with 2:24 to go in overtime Friday, giving the Colorado Avalanche a 6-5 victory over Ottawa.

Duchene was the only player with more than one goal in the high-scoring affair but 23 players had at least one point. Duchene's other goal came late in the second period to forge a 3-3 tie.

Kevin Porter put Colorado in front 2:08 into the third period but scores from Jason Spezza and Daniel Alfredsson rallied Ottawa into the lead with 8:45 to play.

Ryan O'Reilly forced overtime with his fourth goal of the season, coming with 3:13 remaining in regulation.

Colorado won its fifth straight, the Avalanche's longest winning streak of the season.

Craig Anderson got the victory with 24 saves. Brian Elliott gave up all six goals on 25 shots.
