Paul Stastny of the Colorado Avalanche not only tied the game up with fifteen seconds left in regulation, but he won the game seven minutes and twenty-seven seconds into overtime as well. Statsny’s second of the night gives the Avalanche a 1-0 series lead over the Minnesota Wild, who fall to 4-17 in their last 21 playoff games.
Nathan MacKinnon made a sweet spin move behind the net to free himself and found a wide open Stastny at the bottom of the right faceoff circle. From there, Stastny didn’t get all of it, but neither did Wild goalie Ilya Bryzgalov, and the puck found the back of the net.
