Coyotes come from behind and defeat Avalanche in shootout

Jan 27, 2007 - 5:34 AM
DENVER (Ticker) -- Yanic Perreault started the Phoenix Coyotes' comeback and goaltender Curtis Joseph finished it.

Perreault scored two third-period goals and Ladislav Nagy added the lone goal during the shootout to lead the Coyotes to a 5-4 comeback victory over the Colorado Avalanche.

Nagy scored on a wrister over the right shoulder of goaltender Peter Budaj and Joseph stopped consecutive shots by Wojtek Wolski, Milan Hejduk and All-Star Joe Sakic to preserve the shootout win.

Colorado held a 4-2 advantage heading into the final period before Perreault tallied 58 seconds apart to tie the game. His first came on a wrister in the slot past the stick side of Budaj. The second was a deflection off Zbynek Michalek's slap shot which sailed under the cross bar 9:17 into the third period.

Joseph made 23 saves for the Coyotes, who were 1-for-6 on the power play.

Second-period goals by Antti Laaksonen, Brett McLean and Sakic pushed Colorado's lead to 4-2 and set up Perreault's heroics.

Budaj stopped 24 shots, including all five in overtime, for Colorado, which was 0-for-3 with the extra skater.
