DENVER (AP) - Matt Duchene scored his second goal of the night just as time was about to expire in overtime, lifting the Colorado Avalanche over the San Jose Sharks 3-2 on Sunday to stretch their home winning streak to a season-high five straight games.
Duchene, who has three goals in his last two games, wristed a shot past Antti Niemi after taking a pass from P.A. Parenteau.
Officials upheld the goal after a replay review showed Duchene got the shot off an instant before time would have run out in the extra period.
Patrick Marleau scored San Jose's first goal, the 400th of his career. Logan Couture tied the score 2-all at 16:35 of the third when he followed a turnover by Colorado with a slap shot that got past goalie Semyon Varlamov.
