(AP) Ryan O'Reilly scored two goals, including a short-handed tally 45 seconds into overtime, and the Avalanche earned a 4-3 NHL preseason victory over the Los Angeles Kings on Friday night for Patrick Roy's first win as Colorado's coach.


The Avalanche rallied after Dwight King's power-play goal at 38 seconds of the third period made it 3-1.


Steve Downie lifted the puck over sprawled goalie Martin Jones for a power-play goal at 3:20. O'Reilly made it 3-3 at 9:37 when he put in his rebound after taking a pass from Matt Duchene, who had three assists.


In overtime, O'Reilly spun around a defender near the net before knocking in a backhander for the winner.


The Avalanche took a 1-0 lead 26 seconds in on Andre Benoit's goal, but the Kings answered 25 seconds later on a power-play tally by Justin Williams.


Williams also assisted on a goal by Nick Shore, a former University of Denver star.
