Recap: Phoenix vs. Colorado

Glendale, AZ (Sports Network) - Matt Duchesne capped a four-point night with the game-winning goal in the shootout to give the Colorado Avalanche a 5-4 decision over the Phoenix Coyotes at Jobing.com Arena.

Duchesne assisted on three other scores as the Avalanche spoiled the Coyotes' home finale with only their fourth road victory of the season. P.A. Parenteau added a goal and an assist to the win, which he sealed by beating Phoenix goaltender Mike Smith in the second round of the shootout.

After coming up with six saves in overtime, Semyon Varlamov turned back both Coyote skaters he faced in the deciding phase in relief of Jean-Sebastian Giguere, who stopped 27-of-31 shots before departing with an undisclosed injury late in the third period.

Antoine Vermette scored twice and Keith Yandle posted three assists for Phoenix, which lost for the fifth time in its last seven outings (2-2-3). Smith finished with 24 saves.
