 EDMONTON, Alberta (AP) -- Gabriel Landeskog had a goal and an assist as the Colorado Avalanche beat the Edmonton Oilers 3-2 Sunday night for their third straight win.
   Tyson Barrie and Blake Comeau also scored for the Avalanche, who remained one point ahead of Minnesota for the second and final wild-card spot in the Western Conference.
   Matt Hendricks and Ryan Nugent-Hopkins scored for Edmonton, which snapped a two-game winning streak and was mathematically eliminated from playoff contention for the 10th consecutive year.
   Landeskog and Barrie scored in the second period to give the Avalanche a 2-0 lead.
   Hendricks got the Oilers on the scoreboard with his second goal in two games about 3 minutes into the third. However, Comeau deflected Erik Johnson's shot to restore Colorado two-goal lead midway through the period.
   Nugent-Hopkins closed the scoring with just under 7.6 seconds remaining.
