VANCOUVER — Mason Raymond's goal 28 seconds into overtime gave the Vancouver a Canucks a 4-3 victory over the Colorado Avalanche on Tuesday night.

Raymond scored the winner following a face-off in the Colorado zone as he poke-checked defenceman Jonas Holos and the puck squeezed past Colorado goaltender Peter Budaj.

Raymond's goal salvaged a second point for Vancouver after the Canucks lost a one-goal lead with 1:33 left to play. With Budaj pulled for an extra attacker, Matt Duchene beat Roberto Luongo to send the game to overtime.

The Canucks (4-3-2) have claimed nine of a possible 10 points at Rogers Arena this season. The Avalanche (4-4-1) suffered their third straight loss.

Jeff Tambellini, Ryan Kesler and Peter Schaefer, with his first goal in more than two years, scored for the Canucks.

Tambellini and Kesler's goals were their second in two games. Meanwhile, Daniel Sedin's assist on Tambellini's goal extended his season-opening points streak to nine games — tied for the longest in the NHL.

David Jones and Daniel Winnik also scored for Colorado. Avalanche defenceman John-Michael Liles established a record Tuesday night for an NHL season-opening points streak by a defenceman.

Liles recorded a point for the ninth straight game as he assisted on Winnik's second-period goal. The 29-year-old Indianapolis native surpassed the previous mark of eight set by Philip Kuba of the Ottawa Senators in 2008-09.

After a slow start, Colorado outshot the Canucks 39-31. Vancouver converted one of three power-play chances while the Avs were blanked on two.

Colorado played without a backup to Budaj after Avalanche No. 1 netminder Craig Anderson injured his knee in the pre-game warmup. Budaj started the game at Vancouver as scheduled, but Anderson did not sit on the bench during the game.

A team official said after the second period that Anderson is out indefinitely and would fly back to Denver on Wednesday to be evaluated by doctors instead of going with the club to Calgary for a game on Thursday.

Canucks coach Alain Vigneault opted to go back to No. 1 goaltender Luongo after making the rare move of sitting him for Vancouver's previous two home games.

Winnik put the Avalanche ahead 2-1 at 4:40 of the second period as he deflected in a centring pass from Ryan O'Reilly. The goal came moments after Henrik Sedin had jammed the puck off the Colorado post following a fortuitous bounce off the boards.

Daniel Sedin was denied a goal during a power play about two minutes later as the officials decided the whistle had gone before the puck entered the net. Kesler, who was involved in that play, quickly ended his frustration as he scored moments later during the same power play to tie the game 2-2.

Luongo preserved the deadlock during a Colorado power play late in the second as he slide across his crease to stop Paul Stastny's one-timer towards an open net. Colorado outshot the Canucks 16-8 in the second after the Canucks had enjoyed the same advantage in the first.

Schaefer put the Canucks ahead about five minutes into the third. It was Schaefer's first goal since March 27, 2008 while playing for Boston against Toronto. He sat out all last season as no team elected to sign him.

The Avalanche dominated the third, forcing Luongo to make several difficult saves before Duchene scored.
