Avs get a point but lose 9th straight game

DENVER (AP) - Tyler Kennedy scored a power-play goal 4:10 into overtime and Marc-Andre Fleury stopped 29 shots in the Pittsburgh Penguins' 3-2 victory Wednesday night that sent the Colorado Avalanche to their ninth straight loss.

Joe Vitale and Jordan Staal added goals for the injury-plagued Penguins, who snapped a two-game skid.

Kennedy knocked in a rebound after a shot from Alex Goligoski bounced to him off the pads of Peter Budaj. Kevin Porter was called for tripping moments before Kennedy's 12th goal of the season.

Chris Stewart and Cameron Gaunce scored for the Avalanche, who are in the midst of their longest skid since moving to Denver for the 1995-96 season.
