ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - Ryan O'Reilly scored twice, including the game-winner with 7:16 to play, and the Colorado Avalanche beat the Minnesota Wild 4-2 Saturday night.

Gabriel Landeskog and Maxime Talbot also scored for the Avalanche, winners in five of seven. O'Reilly had his first two-goal game of the season

Charlie Coyle had his first career two-goal game for Minnesota, which lost for the first time in five games.

Tied 2-2, and after Ryan Suter's turnover in the Wild end, O'Reilly sent a pass to Matt Duchene in the right corner. Duchene sent the puck back to O'Reilly who lifted a backhand over the left shoulder of Niklas Backstrom from below the right circle. O'Reilly was back in the lineup after missing two games with a bruised shoulder.

Talbot added an empty-netter with 1:10 to play
