(Sports Network) - Two teams battling for position in the Western Conference meet this afternoon in Denver, as the Colorado Avalanche welcome the Edmonton Oilers to the Pepsi Center.

Both the Avalanche and the Oilers have 54 points and are tied at the bottom of the extremely tight Northwest Division. The clubs are also six points out of the final playoff berth in the West.

The Oilers are coming off Thursday's setback to the Northwest-leading Vancouver Canucks, who are tied atop the division with Calgary. Markus Naslund scored the game-winning goal and added an assist to lead the Canucks to the 5-3 home victory.

Marty Reasoner had a goal and an assist while Dwayne Roloson stopped 29-of-33 shots in the loss for the Oilers, who had a two-game winning streak stopped.

The Oilers are 9-13-2 as the visiting club this year and are completing a brief two-game road trip today. They will return to Edmonton Tuesday to battle the Canucks in the opener of a three-game homestand.

Meanwhile, today's game represents the third portion of a five-game stand for the Avalanche, who are 1-1 on the residency so far and 14-11-3 as the home club this year.

I didn't expect much... and we're obviously not getting muchin this game. Not as exciting as Edmonton-Colorado games of the past.

Hopefully the 3rd period will change that.

Oilers top Avalanche with late rally

Associated Press
2/3/2007 6:10:41 PM


DENVER (AP) - Ryan Smyth and Shawn Horcoff scored 30 seconds apart in the third period to help the Edmonton Oilers beat the Colorado Avalanche 3-2 on Saturday for their third victory in four games.

Ales Hemsky added a goal, and Smyth and Horcoff also each had an assist. Dwayne Roloson made 37 saves to end his three-game losing streak.

Brad Richardson and Joe Sakic scored for Colorado, and Peter Budaj stopped 25 shots while making his 15th start in 16 games.

The teams began the day tied for last place in the Northwest Division.

Colorado outshot the Oilers and had two power plays in the first eight minutes of the third period, but the Avalanche couldn't capitalize as Roloson and the Oilers killed both penalties. The Edmonton offence took over in the final eight minutes.
