Duchene leads Avalanche past Predators 6-5

Posted:

DENVER (AP) - Paul Stastny and Jamie McGinn scored goals 13 seconds apart and the Colorado Avalanche snapped a 9-game losing streak to Nashville with a 6-5 win over the Predators in a Monday matinee.

The Predators pulled their goalie and Shea Weber scored with 1:18 left to make it a one-goal game, the only score of the final period.

Matt Duchene had a goal and two assists in helping the Avalanche to a rare win over the Predators, who had outscored Colorado 34-14 while sweeping the season series each of the past two years.

The Predators had pulled to 4-3 on Colin Wilson's goal before the double-whammy by Stastny and McGinn restored Colorado's cushion and forced Nashville coach Barry Trotz to summon Pekka Rinne, who is 6-1-1 in his past eight starts, to the net with 6 minutes left in the second period.
