NHL: Colorado 3, Edmonton 2 (SO)

March 10, 2012 at 7:02 PM

DENVER, March 10 (UPI) -- Milan Hejduk and Peter Mueller scored goals in the shootout Saturday to bring the Colorado Avalanche a 3-2 victory over Edmonton.

Colorado began the day as one of five teams separated by just two points who are battling for the final two playoff positions in the Western Conference.

Semyon Varlamov gave up a game-tying goal to Edmonton's Taylor Hall with 4:43 left in regulation but he was perfect in the shootout against Jordan Eberle and Sam Gagner.

Colorado took a 2-1 lead in the second period on goals from Cody McLeod and Muller before Hall knotted the score.

Varlamov made 28 saves. Nikolai Khabibulin stopped 30 shots for the Oilers, who have lost four out of five.
