DENVER - Matt Duchene works on his shootout moves before every game. Isaiah Oliver Jersey . His efforts paid off for the Colorado Avalanche on Friday night.Duchene and Alex Tanguay scored shootout goals, Semyon Varlamov stopped both of Edmontons shooters and the Avalanche beat the Oilers 2-1.Varlamov had 27 saves in regulation and overtime, and Daniel Briere scored in regulation for Colorado. It was the fifth straight shootout win for the Avalanche, who are 6-2-2 in their last 10.Its great to start the new year, with a big win, Duchene said. We want to roll through January here.He got his team off to a good start.After both teams failed to convert on their first shootout opportunities, Duchene skated slowly into the zone, got goalie Ben Scrivens to go down and beat him with a low shot.Me and Mario (Duhamel), our video coach, come up with something before each game, Duchene said. I think the biggest thing is each goalie has a different style and I just tried to get him to bite and make him change direction.Varlamov made a save on Jordan Eberle, and Tanguay skated slowly at the net and finished it with a roof shot over a sprawled Scrivens.Its tough when they come in so slow, Scrivens said. Its not a game situation where they have back pressure. Duchene has a good shot. You have to respect his shot. He is a good player.Ben Pouliot scored for Edmonton, and Scrivens finished with 27 saves. The Oilers, who are last in the NHL in points with 25, are 1-7-4 in their last 11 games and 1-9 in games decided after regulation.I thought our overtime period was a lot better than weve seen in the past, Edmonton coach Todd Nelson said. We had puck control, we had some good, quality chances, but we have to shoot the puck in those situations.Neither team generated much offence until the Avalanche broke through in the second period. Duchene, one of the many Colorado forwards struggling to score, carried the puck behind the net to the front and fed Briere on the opposite side. Briere knocked the puck into an open net at 7:55 of the period.It was his seventh of the season and first in 13 games.I was able to get a step on the guy coming out front, Duchene said. I was just trying to put it over there. He is such a smart player and wouldnt miss that one.Edmonton generated just five shots in the second period, but gained some momentum with three consecutive power plays. After failing to capitalize on the first two, Pouliot tied it at 4:47 of the third with his sixth of the season. The big left wing, who returned to action after missing 18 games with a broken foot, muscled through defenceman Jan Hejda to knock a rebound past Varlamov to tie it at 1.He made an impact for us, Nelson said of Pouliot. He played a simple, solid game and capitalized on the goal, obviously. This is kind of a tough spot for him, coming back here. Its hard to breathe, but he had short shifts.Both teams had chances to take the lead. Colorados Gabriel Landeskogs backhander at a wide-open goal hit the side of the net, and Edmontons Teddy Purcell hit the right post with a shot midway through the third.Colorado didnt get its first shot on net in the third until 7:15 was left in regulation. The Avalanche were outshot 12-3 in the third.NOTES: The Oilers acquired C Rob Klinkhammer and a 2015 first-round pick from Pittsburgh for LW David Perron. ... Edmonton D Keith Aulie served the first game of his two-game suspension for his hit on Calgary F Matt Stajan on Wednesday. ... Avalanche D Zach Redmond was a healthy scratch for the second straight game. Custom Falcons Jerseys . -- Canadas Milos Raonic defeated Edouard Roger-Vasselin of France on Saturday to advance to the third round of the BNP Paribas Open. Deadrin Senat Falcons Jersey . Replay backed him up. Adeiny Hechavarria immediately followed the ruling with a go-ahead sacrifice fly for the Miami Marlins, who held on to beat the Seattle Mariners 3-2 on Sunday completing a three-game sweep. http://www.thefaclonsshoponline.com/Ito-Smith-Falcons-Jersey/ . Henry, who missed three games with a knee injury, was charged with a handball in the penalty area in the 82nd minute as he went to block a strike from Patrick Mullins. On the ensuing penalty kick, Lee Nguyen picked up his fourth goal of the season, giving the Revolution a 2-1 win Saturday afternoon.MONTREAL - The seven-game losing streak was over for the Montreal Impact and no one looked more relieved than Marco Di Vaio. The 38-year-old strikers goal in the 84th minute was the difference as the Impact downed the Chicago Fire 1-0 on a wet Saturday night at Saputo Stadium that saw a promising debut by new Argentine designated player Ignacio Piatti. It was Montreals first victory since a 3-0 decision at home over Houston on June 29. Italian striker Di Vaio had a goal in that game as well. "Its been a long time that we won a game with my goal, so Im really happy for me, for the team, the coach and the fans because we needed it," said Di Vaio. "Its a good win and it will give us more confidence." The Impact (4-14-5) remained 10th and last in the MLS Eastern Conference behind the ninth-place Fire (4-6-13). But the team got its fifth shutout of the season, after allowing 15 goals during the losing run. "Its definitely a monkey off our back," said goalkeeper Evan Bush. "A lot of the games lately, people say we havent been playing with energy, but a lot of that has been that we were putting extra pressure on ourselves to get results. "But to get that result, I think it will open things up for us to play a little more confidently." What had been mostly a defensive struggle broke open when substitute Maxim Tissot sent fullback Eric Miller in on the left side. The rookies dogged battle with Razva Cocis saw the ball squirt out to Di Vaio, who calmly slotted in his fifth goal of the season from near the penalty spot. Piatti got a loud welcome from the announced crowd of 17,132. The Argentine midfielder had some encouraging moments, particularly when he combined with Di Vaio, before he was substituted in the 54th minute for Andres Romero. Di Vaio, whose contract is up at the end of the season, was asked if he would consider extending his stay in Montreal to play an extra season with the Italian and Spanish-speaking Piatti, who inked a three and a half year deal. He said it would be difficult at his age. "We already had a little talk between us," Piatti said through a translator. "I asked Marco if he will stay, but Marco said its tough because of his family. But I said maybe we can find a solution. "t;Marcos a great player. Ito Smith Jersey. You give him the ball and you get it back right away. There was a chemistry there, but theres still a lot of work to do to develop the chemistry." The 29-year-old Piatti, who arrived Wednesday after helping the San Lorenzo club in Argentina to the Copa Libertatores final, said he was not surprised by the pace and physical style of MLS, but said he would need time to adapt to his new team. "Its a first game, I felt pretty good," said Piatti, who had an ice pack on left knee at the bench after he came off. "The team played well as a group." His best chance came only six minutes into the game. Piatti found himself in the Chicago area after a run down the left side, but wasnt able to get full control of the ball. The victory got a busy week off a to a good start. The Impact travel to El Salvador to face CD FAS in a CONCACAF Champions League match on Wednesday and then head to New York to play the Red bulls on Saturday. "It helps a lot because we had lost seven games in a row in MLS and now we have a big game in San Salvador," said Tissot. "Hopefully we can keep this going." Chicago, which ended a three-game league unbeaten run, was coming off a 6-0 defeat Wednesday to Seattle in U.S. Open Cup play. The Fire played with ardour, taking away the middle of the field and launching counterattacks, and made the Impact work for their chances. One came in the 60th, when Felipe sent Romero on a run to the edge of the area and his low shot needed a reaching, one-handed save by Sean Johnson. Bush had a hairy moment in the 38th minute when Lovel Palmers shot from the right side got through his hands, but the ball was cleared from the six-yard box. The Fire also had eight corner kicks, which are often an adventure for the Montreal defence. But centrebacks Matteo Ferrari and Wandrille Lefevre were sharp. Notes: Impact midfielder Calum Mallace served a one-game suspension for going onto the field from the bench during a game last week. . . Montreal is unbeaten (2-0-2) at home against Chicago in three seasons in MLS. . . Midfielder Dilly Duka, acquired July 29 from the Fire, played 90 minutes while Sanna Nyassi, who went to Chicago in the same deal, went on as a sub in the 78th.
