Edmonton, AB (Sports Network) - Ales Hemsky scored one of four power-play goals as the Edmonton Oilers rolled to a 4-1 win at Rexall Place over a Colorado Avalanche team that played without its captain.

Jordan Eberle, Shawn Horcoff and 2012 No. 1 overall pick Nail Yakupov also lit the lamp for the Oilers, who entered the game having not led at any point this season. Devan Dubnyk stopped 37 Colorado shots, including a whopping 23 in the third period.

PA Parenteau scored the lone goal for the Avalanche, who have been outscored 12-3 in dropping all three road games this season. Semyon Varlamov made 23 saves.

Gabriel Landeskog missed the first game of his career Monday due to head and leg injuries. The reigning Calder Trophy winner was hurt Saturday when he absorbed a check by Sharks defenseman Brad Stuart in Colorado's 4-0 setback at San Jose.
