Recap: Colorado vs. Edmonton

Denver, CO (Sports Network) - P.A. Parenteau and Jamie McGinn tallied in the second period to help Colorado overcome an early deficit and beat Edmonton, 3-1, at Pepsi Center.

Paul Stastny added a late score and Matt Duchene posted two assists for the Avalanche, who have won two in a row since losing three straight.

Semyon Varlamov stopped 25 shots for Colorado, which avenged a 4-1 loss to their foes in Edmonton on Monday and emerged victorious in its first outing without the services of Gabriel Landeskog -- who was placed on injured reserve Friday.

"We knew we had to come out big tonight, and I'm glad we got a couple after that bad start," said McGinn.

Nail Yakupov's first-period marker was all for the Oilers, losers in three of their last five. Devan Dubnyk played well in defeat, making 37 saves.

Parenteau's deflection of a Ryan Wilson floater from the point evened the game with 7:53 remaining in the second period, then McGinn's strike roughly 2 1/2 minutes later put the hosts on top to stay.

"It was a great play by Erik (Johnson), even though he didn't get an assist, he made a great play in the D-zone. I managed to get the puck on the boards, then I saw Jamie wide open," Duchene said of the sequence that led to the game winner.

Edmonton was awarded a power play with 3:20 remaining when Stastny was sent off for a rare face-off violation, but Colorado managed to kill it off then pick up an insurance goal in the final minutes with an empty-net score from Stastny.

The Oilers struck less than a minute after the opening faceoff when Yakupov swept home a rebound from the left side.

"It's tough to lose to a division rival. We came out strong, but after that, they took it to us," noted Oilers forward Ryan Nugent-Hopkins. "We were turning the puck over too much. We let our guard down for 5 minutes and that's all it takes."

2014-15 San Jose Sharks Preview

In another move that bucks tradition, the Sharks completely revamped their on- ice leadership structure not by selecting new players to wear the precious singular letters on their uniforms, but by stripping the captaincy from Joe Thornton, removing the alternate tag from Patrick Marleau and leaving the other "A" vacant after Dan Boyle signed as a free agent with the Rangers.
