Videos: Ten amazing Colorado Avalanche OT goals -- including two in this year's playoffs
On Saturday night, the Colorado Avs went from death's door to the driver's seat in their playoff series with the Minnesota Wild, scoring in the last two minutes of the third period to force overtime, with super-teen Nathan McKinnon putting the biscuit in the basket a short time into the extra period. That gives the Avs a 3-2 advantage going into tonight's game six in Minnesota.
OT winners are nothing new for the Avs, who have made a habit of such thrillers in the past few years -- not to mention during their championship seasons. Below, see ten of our favorites listed mostly in chronological order, but with a special surprise at the end.
