DENVER (AP) - Kevin Porter scored on a breakaway with 2:53 remaining in overtime and the Colorado Avalanche rallied for a 4-3 win over the San Jose Sharks on Wednesday night.
Porter broke free from Sharks defenseman Kent Huskins and beat goalie Antero Niittymaki with a low shot as Porter was tumbling to the ice.
Trailing 3-1 midway through the third period, the Avalanche tied up the game on goals from Chris Stewart and Paul Stastny.
Kevin Shattenkirk also scored for the Avalanche, his first NHL goal. Peter Budaj finished with 40 saves, including a flurry in the closing seconds of regulation.
Logan Couture, Dan Boyle and Mike Moore added goals for the Sharks, who had their winning streak halted at three games.
