Wild Blow 2-0 Lead, Fall to Colorado
ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Nathan MacKinnon's goal with 10 minutes left finished off a third-period comeback, and Calvin Pickard stopped 41 shots to help the Colorado Avalanche beat the Minnesota Wild 3-2 on Saturday night.
Colorado trailed 2-0 heading into the final period, but goals by Mikko Rantanen and Carl Soderberg just 3 minutes apart tied the game.
MacKinnon's individual play, taking the puck up the center of the ice and beating Minnesota goalie Devan Dubnyk, completed the rally.
After scoring twice in the season's first 15 games, MacKinnon has a goal in back-to-back games. He signed a seven-year, $44.1 million contract extension in the offseason.
Dubnyk made 31 saves for the Wild, but his shutout streak was snapped at 156 minutes, 6 seconds. Charlie Coyle and Tyler Graovac scored for Minnesota, which had been 6-0-1 when leading after two periods.
