The Ottawa Senators were less than three minutes away from a victory on the road, but they had to settle for just a single point.

The Colorado Avalanche, on the other hand, got a 4-3 overtime victory thanks to a late-game rally and a quick winner in the extra frame.

Paul Stastny‘s goal with 2:20 remaining in regulation forced the extra period and Tyson Barrie buried a beautiful wrist shot to give the Avalanche the win just 33 seconds into overtime.

“I think we got what we deserved,” Senators head coach Paul MacLean said, as per NHL.com.

Late-game comebacks, collapses and heroics have made for some juicy conversation across the hockey world of late. On Tuesday, the Vancouver Canucks led the Pittsburgh Penguins by two goals with under two minutes to play in the third period, and lost the game 5-4 in the shootout thanks in large to Sidney Crosby.

The first video highlight is of Stastny’s goal to tie the game.

Here is a video of the winning goal.

    So much for the “Cause for Concern” article yesterday. Obviously this team has what it takes to win in a lot of situations. It’s just a young team and going to take time coupled with some better defensemen until it’s a top contender in the league.
