Nathan MacKinnon scored his second goal of the game 27 seconds into overtime as the Colorado Avalanche defeated the Vancouver Canucks 5-4 Saturday night.
MacKinnon used his speed to go around a Canuck defender then scored on the blocker side.
The Canucks forced the overtime when Alex Edler and Brock Boeser scored goals 1:37 apart in the third period. Both goals came with the Canuck goaltender pulled for an extra attacker.
Boeser tied the game with one minute remaining on the rebound of a Elias Pettersson shot.
