DENVER (AP) - Devan Dubnyk had a season-high 40 saves and defensemen Cam Barker and Andy Sutton each scored their first goals of the season, leading the Edmonton Oilers past the Colorado Avalanche 3-1 on Friday night.
Ryan Smyth added a goal and two assists to help Edmonton win its fourth straight.
Ryan O'Reilly scored for Colorado, which leads the league with six road wins but fell to 0-3 at home despite having a season-high 41 shots.
Both teams are off to good starts after finishing last season 29th (Colorado) and 30th (Edmonton) in the NHL last season. The game featured the first meeting between the top two picks in the
NHL draft, Edmonton's No. 1 overall pick Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and Colorado's Gabriel Landeskog, the second overall selection.
