EDMONTON, Alberta (AP) Tyson Barrie had two goals and an assist and the Colorado Avalanche beat the Edmonton Oilers 3-2 Saturday night.

John Mitchell also scored for the Avalanche, and Colorado has won four of its last five to remain in a playoff wild-card spot. Calvin Pickard made 25 saves.

Taylor Hall and Benoit Pouliot scored for Edmonton, and Cam Talbot made 26 saves. The Oilers have lost four in a row and seven of their last eight to drop into last place in the NHL.

Hall struck 7:14 into the first after gathering a big rebound from Leon Draisaitl's shot. It was Hall's 20th goal this season.

Mitchell tied it 4 minutes later off Blake Comeau's slick pass to the doorstep.
