DENVER (AP) - Ladislav Nagy scored the only goal in the shootout, lifting the Phoenix Coyotes to a 5-4 victory over the Colorado Avalanche on Friday night.

Curtis Joseph finished with 23 saves and then stopped Wojtek Wolski, Milan Hejduk and Joe Sakic in the shootout as the Coyotes broke a seven-game losing streak to the Avalanche. Phoenix got its first win in Colorado since Oct. 30, 2000, and improved to 5-1 in shootouts this season.

Zbynek Michalek and Yanic Perreault scored 1:17 apart in the third period to tie the score at 4. Both goals came on Avalanche turnovers in Colorado's zone.

Antti Laaksonen and Jordan Leopold scored short-handed goals for Colorado. The Coyotes have now given up 10 short-handed goals, tied for the most in the NHL.

Peter Budaj, starting his 12th straight game, stopped 25 shots.

Colorado scored three goals in the second period to take a 4-2 lead. Laaksonen scored short-handed after stealing the puck, Brett McLean was credited with a goal after it went off the leg of Phoenix defenceman Ed Jovanovski and Sakic added his 21st of the season.
