    Milan Hejduk scored 7:53 into overtime as the Colorado Avalanche beat the San Jose Sharks 2-1 on Monday night to take a two-game to none advantage in the first-round, best-of-seven playoff series.

    The series now moves to Denver for the next three games.

    Hejduk took a pass from Colorado captain Joe Sakic and fought off Sharks left wing Jeff Friesen in front of the crease to beat goalie Mike Vernon.
