April 13, 2013 at 5:46 PM

DENVER, April 13 (UPI) -- Jan Hejda's blast from the point with 7 seconds left Saturday capped a Colorado rally and boosted the Avalanche over Vancouver 4-3.

Trailing 3-2 after Jason Garrison's goal gave Vancouver the lead early in the final frame, the Avalanche got the equalizer with 7 minutes to go when P.A. Parenteau notched his 16th goal of the season.

Then, with an extra attacker on the ice as time was running down, Colorado pulled out the victory when Hejda's slap shot found its way past Canucks goalie Cory Schneider.

Gabriel Landeskog and Cody McLeod also tallied for the Avs, who improved to 2-4-2 in April.

Jean-Sebastien Giguere made 24 saves in the victory.

Maxim Lapierre and Jannik Hansen each scored and Schneider finished with 22 saves for Northwest Division-leading Vancouver.
