GLENDALE, Ariz., Nov. 22 (UPI) -- Ryan O'Reilly scored a power-play goal in overtime Thursday, capping a late comeback that boosted the Colorado Avalanche over Phoenix 4-3.

The Coyotes had grabbed a 3-2 lead with 5:54 left in regulation on Antoine Vermette's goal, but they couldn't hold the advantage as Cody McLeod sent the game into overtime with a shot through Mike Smith's legs 2 1/2 minutes later.

In overtime, Phoenix's Keith Yandle was called for slashing and the Avs went on a power-play. O'Reilly ended the game with a snap shot from the right circle that beat Smith cleanly.

Andre Benoit supplied a goal and two assists and John Mitchell helped out with a goal and an assist for Colorado, which won a second straight contest following a three-game skid.

Semyon Varlamov stopped 41 shots for the victory.

Martin Hanzal and Michael Stone scored and Smith finished with 26 saves for the Coyotes.
