Grabner leads Islanders past Avalanche in OT
Denver, CO (SportsNetwork.com) - Michael Grabner scored 1:46 into overtime to give the surging New York Islanders their sixth consecutive road win, a 2-1 come-from-behind triumph over the Colorado Avalanche at Pepsi Center.
The Islanders trailed 1-0 before Brock Nelson tallied 4:28 into the third period, then completed the rally when Grabner landed a wrister over the glove of Semyon Varlamov moments after being stopped on a partial breakaway.
Kevin Poulin contributed to New York's sixth victory in seven games overall by turning aside 30-of-31 shots.
Varlamov finished with 22 saves and Nathan MacKinnon potted the lone goal for Colorado, which had won four of five coming in.
