GLENDALE, Ariz. Takkarist McKinley Jersey . -- The Colorado Avalanche knew they would get a fight from the Phoenix Coyotes, one of the NHLs best rallying teams. But when the Coyotes pushed, the Avalanche pushed right back. Ryan OReilly scored a power-play goal with 41 seconds left in overtime and Colorado bounced back after allowing two third-period goals to beat Phoenix 4-3 on Thursday night. "Thats (fighting back) what good teams do and what we have to learn," Colorado LW Gabriel Landeskog said. "Its just about finding ways to win and thats what we did." Colorado had been the NHLs best team at holding a lead and entered the third period up 2-1 on goals by Andre Benoit and John Mitchell. Coming off a four-day break, Phoenix turned up the pressure in the third period and went ahead 3-2 on goals by Martin Hanzal and Antoine Vermette four minutes apart. The Avalanche fought back, though, tying it with 3:14 left in regulation on a whirling backhander by Cody McLeod that found its way through Mike Smiths pads. OReilly ended it in overtime, sending a wrist shot past Smith for his ninth goal of the season and Colorados seventh win in nine road games. "This is a very good team, probably one of the best in the NHL and I thought our guys did a good job of coming here and winning that game," Avalanche coach Patrick Roy said. Phoenix dictated play most of the way, spending long stretches in Colorados zone and sending 44 shots at Avalanche goalie Semyon Varlamov. The Coyotes fell behind 2-0 despite dominating early and fought back late, but were hurt by two late penalties: One by Hanzal that carried over into overtime and another by Keith Yandle that set up Colorados winning power play. Michael Stone also scored and Shane Doan extended his points streak to seven games with an assist on Vermettes goal for the Coyotes, who remain unbeaten in regulation at home (9-0-2). "I thought we did a lot of good things in that game, thought we controlled a lot of the play, had upward of 75 scoring chances," Coyotes coach Dave Tippett said. "But in a tight game, mistakes matter and when you put a team on the power play twice in overtime, it usually comes back to bite you and it did." Two of the NHLs highest-scoring teams needed a little while to get rolling, playing a scoreless first period. Phoenix had some good chances in the opening 20 minutes, but couldnt get any of its 15 shots past Varlamov. Colorado needed 32 seconds of the second period and six seconds of a power play to break the scoreless tie. Mitchell got it, ending up with the puck between the circles after a face-off and whipping it past Smith for his fourth goal of the season. That didnt bode well for the Coyotes; Colorado entered the game as the only NHL team that hadnt lost after the first period at 13-0. Paul Stastny nearly added to it midway through the period, but Smith made a spectacular save, sliding to his right then stacking his pads to glove the one-timer. Benoit did get one past Smith later in the period on a shot from the point that hit the crossbar and trickled in after hitting the goalies back. Benoit was hit in the face early in the period, but returned with a bandage on his chin to score for the first time since last April. Stone finally got the Coyotes on the board with a long-distance goal, beating Varlamov with a hard shot from just inside the red line that caromed in off the left post for his seventh of the season. The Coyotes thought they had it tied 5 minutes into the third period when Oliver Ekman-Larsson beat Varlamov from the left circle, but it was waved off because David Moss knocked the Avalanche goalie over after a shove by Colorados Jan Hejda. Phoenix kept up the pressure and Hanzal tied midway through the period, lifting a loose rebound over a prone Varlamov. Vermette scored on a power play, but the lead lasted less than three minutes before McLeod tied it to send the game to overtime. OReilly ended it as the clock wound down in overtime, scoring on Colorados second power-play chance in the extra period. "We got ourselves back in the game, but its unfortunate we took the two penalties to give them a chance to win it," Tippett said. The Avalanche made the most of it, winning for the 16th time in 21 games this season. NOTES: Ekman-Larsson played his 200th career game. ... The Avalanche have allowed an NHL-low nine first-period goals this season. ... The Coyotes placed D Zbynek Michalek on injured reserve on Thursday with a lower-body injury. ... Colorado leading scorer Matt Duchene missed his second straight game with an oblique injury. Takkarist McKinley Falcons Jersey .

The situation isnt that bleak, of course, for the Sochi Games. Yet, with less than three weeks to go until the opening ceremony, hundreds of thousands of tickets remain unsold, raising the prospect of empty seats and a lack of atmosphere at Russias first Winter Olympics. There are signs that many foreign fans are staying away, turned off by terrorist threats, expensive flights and hotels, long travel distances, a shortage of tourist attractions in the area, and the hassle of obtaining visas and spectator passes. "Some people are scared it costs too much and other people are scared because of security," senior International Olympic Committee member Gerhard Heiberg of Norway told The Associated Press. "From my country, I know that several people and companies are not going for these two reasons. Of course, there will be Norwegians there but not as many as we are used to." Sochi organizers announced last week that 70 per cent of tickets have been sold for the games, which run from Feb. 7-23 and represent a symbol of pride and prestige for Russia and President Vladimir Putin. So what about the remaining 30 per cent? "We are keeping a special quota for those who come for the games, so that they can indeed buy tickets for the competitions," organizing committee chief Dmitry Chernyshenko said. Chernyshenko said about 213,000 spectators are expected at the games, with about 75 per cent likely to be Russians. "Tickets are being snapped up fast with the most popular events being hockey, biathlon, figure skating, freestyle and snowboard," the organizing committee said in a statement to the AP. "With 70 per cent of tickets already sold and another ticketing office opening shortly, we are expecting strong last-minute ticket sales and do not envisage having empty seats." Sochi officials have refused to divulge how many tickets in total were put up for sale, saying the figure would only be released after the games. However, according to IOC marketing documents seen by the AP, Sochi had a total of 1.1 million tickets on offer. That would mean about 300,000 tickets remained available. By comparison, 1.54 million tickets were available for the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver and 97 per cent (1.49 million) were sold. For the 2012 Summer Games in London, organizers sold 97 per cent (8.2 million) of their 8.5 million tickets. Heiberg, who chairs the IOC marketing commission, said the Russians have cut down by 50 per cent on the number of spectators originally planned for the mountain events for security reasons. "That means there will be less people and probably less enthusiasm than we had, for instance, in Lillehammer," he said. "I hope the Russians will fill not only their indoor stadiums but there will be enough people in the stadiums for the Nordic events." Heiberg organized the 1994 Lillehammer Winter Olympics, which stood out for the colorful atmosphere generated by passionate Norwegian fanns. Duke Riley Womens Jersey. Sochis ticket sales began in February 2013, a year before the games. Tickets have been sold on Sochis official website on a first-come, first-served basis. Box offices are now open in Moscow and Sochi. The cheapest tickets go for 500 rubles ($15), the most expensive for 40,000 rubles ($1,200). More than half of all tickets cost less than 5,000 rubles ($150). The average monthly salary in Russia is 30,000 rubles ($890). The one and only authorized ticket office in Sochi was busy on a recent afternoon, with three dozen people lining up at what once was a waiting room at the citys railway station. Many, however, complained that all the cheap tickets were already gone. "Prices leave much to be desired, but what can you can do?" said Sochi resident Yana Ivolovskaya, who bought two tickets for bobsled for 2,000 rubles ($60). "Were not going to get another Olympics in Sochi so I thought I should go." Fans outside Russia buy tickets from authorized dealers appointed by their national Olympic committees. Attracting foreign visitors has been a challenge amid all the headlines about Russias law banning gay "propaganda," human rights issues and -- particularly -- the risk of terrorism. Back-to-back suicide bombings killed 34 people last month in Volgograd, about 400 miles (640 kilometres) from Sochi. On Sunday, an Islamic militant group in Russias North Caucasus claimed responsibility for the bombings and posted a video threatening to strike the Sochi Games. CoSport, the official ticket reseller in the United States and six other countries, said the Sochi Games generated "good demand" for tickets and packages. "We experienced demand at expected levels," spokesman Michael Kontos said, without giving figures. Flights to Sochi are expensive, and most international travellers have to go through Moscow, with direct flights to Sochi only available from Germany and Turkey. Western travellers must navigate the time-consuming visa process and requirement to obtain a "spectator pass" along with their tickets. This requires providing passport details that allow authorities to screen all visitors. "What we are hearing is that the bureaucratic complexity, with spectator passes and visa and so on, is what scares off fans, more than worries about security," Austrian Olympic Committee spokesman Wolfgang Eichler said. Jan Serenander, managing director of Jet Set Sports in Norway, cited a lack of tourist attractions in the Black Sea resort. "When Sochi was announced no one had even heard of the place," he said. "They had to get out their atlases." Die-hard winter sports fans, however, will not be discouraged. Orange-clad speedskating fans from the Netherlands are always among the most visible spectators at any Winter Games. "I expect it to be orange," Jeroen de Roever, manager of official Duch ticket seller ATPI, said of Sochis speedskating venue. "We have been sold out for quite a while."
