Legwand scores in OT as Preds down Avs

David Legwand netted a pair of goals, winner 34 seconds into overtime, leading the Nashville 2 win over the Colorado Avalanche.

Legwand's winner came when he picked up a loose puck in the neutral zone, raced into the offensive zone on the right wing before cutting to the slot. The veteran forward then wristed one on net that was stopped by Jean-Sebastien Giguere, but Legwand was there to stuff home the rebound for the win.

Sergei Kostitsyn netted the other goal, and Pekka Rinne stopped 27-of-29 shots for the Predators, who extended their winning streak to three games.

Ryan O'Reilly finished with a goal and an assist and Gabriel Landeskog also found the back of the net for the Avs, who have lost three straight. Giguere was tagged for all three goals on 35 shots in defeat.
