Hejduk's shootout goal gives Avs win in LA

LOS ANGELES (AP) - Ryan O'Reilly scored the tying goal with 5:43 left in the third period, Milan Hejduk got the only goal in a shootout and Semyon Varlamov made 31 saves to lead the Colorado Avalanche to a 2-1 victory over the Los Angeles Kings on Monday night.

Kings goalie Jonathan Quick, trying for his NHL-leading sixth shutout, finished with 20 saves. He stopped Colorado's first 19 shots before O'Reilly carried the puck into the Kings' zone off a turnover by Kyle Clifford and scored on a 30-foot wrist shot that beat Quick to the stick side.

The Avalanche are 7-0 in shootouts and have won their last 10 tiebreakers, one shy of the NHL record for consecutive shootout wins set by the Dallas Stars - all during the 2005-06 season. Quick is 3-4 in shootouts, after going 10-0 last season.
