SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) — Cale Makar scored a late game-tying goal, and the Colorado Avalanche beat San Jose 2-1 in a shootout on the road on Saturday night to spoil a 51-save performance by Sharks goaltender Mackenzie Blackwood.

The Avalanche scored with just over a minute left in regulation on their 49th shot on net, when Makar wristed one past Blackwood with an empty net to tie the game at 1-1.

After a scoreless overtime in which Colorado killed off a 4-on-3 advantage, Mikko Rantanen scored the lone goal in the shootout to secure the win for the Avalanche.
