DENVER (AP) - Paul Stastny had the tying goal and two assists and Tyson Barrie scored 33 seconds into overtime to complete the rally that lifted the Colorado Avalanche to a 4-3 win over the Ottawa Senators on Wednesday night.

Jan Hejda and Jamie McGinn also scored for Colorado.

The Avalanche were down 3-2 in the third and pressed for the tying goal. John Mitchell nearly tied it when his shot went off the inside of the right post. Stastny got the equalizer moments later when he deked goalie Craig Anderson and scored at 17:40.

In overtime, Stastny fed Barrie in front of the net and the defenseman buried the chance to give Colorado the win.
