March 12, 2012 at 11:58 PM   |   Comments

DENVER, March 12 (UPI) -- Gabriel Landeskog's slap shot 1:52 into overtime Monday handed the Colorado Avalanche a 3-2 victory over Anaheim.

After Anaheim failed to clear the puck out of its own zone at the right point, Matt Hunwick found Landeskog with a short pass and the 19-year-old fired a high shot to the short side of Ducks goalie Jonas Hiller for the game-winner.

Kevin Porter and Jamie McGinn also scored while Semyon Varlamov turned aside 38-of-40 shots for the Avs, who grabbed sole possession of the eighth and final Western Conference playoff spot with the victory.

Teemu Selanne notched a goal for his 1,399th career point -- surpassing Jari Kurri for 19th on the all-time NHL scoring list -- and Francois Beauchemin also scored for the Ducks.

Hiller finished with 30 saves for Anaheim.
