DENVER (AP) J.T Compher scored at 2:50 of overtime and Tyson Jost and Vladislav Namestnikov also had goals to lead the Colorado Avalanche over the New York Rangers 3-2 on Wednesday night.
Cale Makar had three assists in his return to the lineup from an upper-body injury that kept him out for five games. Compher tipped in his shot from the top of the zone to give Colorado the win.
"He looked rusty, he looked like he was fumbling the puck, his defensive details weren't great, his gaps weren't great and then he goes out and gets three points, including a big play on the game winner," Colorado coach Jared Bednar said of Makar. "He finds a way, finds a way to get it done on the offensive side."
