AVALANCHE EDGE SHARKS IN FINAL GAME BEFORE STADIUM SERIES.

The Sharks tied the game with 1:31 remaining in regulation, but Nathan MacKinnon (0-1—1) and Matt Duchene both scored in the shootout to lift the Avalanche to a win in their final outing before meeting the Detroit Red Wings in Saturday’s 2016 Coors Light NHL Stadium Series.

At 32-27-4 (68 points), the Avalanche moved four points ahead of the idle Wild (27-23-10, 64 points) for the final playoff berth in the Western Conference. They also moved within one point of the idle Predators (29-21-11, 69 points) for the first Wild Card position in the conference.

The Avalanche improved to 5-2-0 in their last seven contests on the heels of a four-game skid (0-3-1).
