DENVER (AP) - Andrew Brunette scored two goals, including the tiebreaker in the third period that led the Colorado Avalanche past the Vancouver Canucks 3-2 Saturday night.

Brunette took a pass from Brett Clark and deked goaltender Roberto Luongo, who fell for the fake to the left, allowing Brunette to slip the puck past him on the glove side to break a 2-2 tie at 3:22.

The Avs had ended the second period on a down note after failing to capitalize on a 5-on-3 power play, missing three shots despite having the two-man advantage for a full two minutes. Lukas Krajicek was called for hooking, and Rory Fitzpatrick was caught slashing by the time play stopped.

Colorado's Jose Theodore made 36 saves as the Canucks outshot the Avalanche 38-20.

The Avs entered the game averaging 35 shots per game, tops in the NHL. But they managed just six in the first period, when the Canucks had 15, including Markus Naslund's goal with 53 seconds left.
