DENVER -- Matt Duchene scored 2:33 into overtime, and Semyon Varlamov stopped 33 shots to lift the Colorado Avalanche to a 3-2 win over the Winnipeg Jets on Monday night.

John Mitchell and Andre Benoit also scored for the Avalanche, who have won five of six.

Dustin Byfuglien scored both goals for the Jets.

Duchene knocked in the winner on a scramble in front of the net. Defenseman Tobias Enstrom tried to punch the puck into the corner, but it hit Duchene in the shin and dropped down to his stick. From there, Duchene lifted it over backup goalie Al Montoya.

Duchene has a career-best eight-game point streak.
