DENVER (AP) -- Jussi Jokinen skated across the front of the crease and roofed a shot over sprawling goalie Semyon Varlamov to give the Pittsburgh Penguins a 3-2 win over the Colorado Avalanche in a shootout on Sunday night.

After Jokinen's goal, Marc-Andre Fleury made a pad save on Gabriel Landeskog's shot, snapping Colorado's six-game winning streak and denying Varlamov franchise records for most home and overall wins in a season.

After falling behind 2-0 on Brandon Sutter's first multiple-goal game this season, Colorado scored twice in the third period to tie it and send the game to overtime.

Ryan O'Reilly scored his team-leading 28th goal of the season 18 seconds into the third period, and Patrick Bordeleau redirected defenseman Tyson Barrie's shot from the point past Fleury with 3:13 left in regulation.
