Oilers vie for home-and-home sweep of Avalanche

EDMONTON, Alberta -- The Edmonton Oilers played one of their worst games of the season on Thursday as the Colorado Avalanche easily held the balance of play for the first two periods.

Yet the Oilers posted a 7-4 win in Denver thanks to a five-goal outburst in the third period. It was an illustration of the talent gap between the two teams that the Oilers could spot the Avalanche 2-0 and 4-2 leads, lay a collective egg and still find a way to win going away.

The Oilers are in the thick of the Pacific Division race, currently holding down third place. The Avalanche, however, sport a 20-50-3 record and are 46 points behind the Oilers in the standings.
