Ryan O'Reilly had a goal and scored in the shootout, Semyon Varlamov made 33 saves and the Colorado Avalanche beat the New Jersey Devils 2-1 on Thursday night.

Matt Duchene also scored in a shootout for the Avalanche, who have won three straight.

Cory Schneider stopped 37 shots and Andrei Loktionov scored for the Devils, who had their two-game winning streak stopped.

The Avalanche played without center Paul Stastny (leg) and defenseman Cory Sarich (back) for the second straight game. Coach Patrick Roy chose to dress just 11 forwards and go with seven defensemen against the Devils.
