DENVER (AP) - David Legwand scored at 3:07 of overtime to give Nashville a 4-3 victory over the Colorado Avalanche on Wednesday night, the Predators' seventh straight victory.
J.P. Dumont, Marcel Goc and Shea Weber also scored, and Pekka Rinna made 19 saves in Nashville's 11th victory in its last 13 games.
Both teams had quality chances to win the game in the final minutes of regulation, but the goalies came up with big saves.
Nashville got on the board early when the Avs couldn't clear the puck out of their zone during a penalty kill. Jason Arnott got the puck at the right circle and sent a pass through the defense. Dumont then redirected the feed past Anderson three minutes into the game.
Goc made it 2-0 when he one-timed a pass from Martin Erat with 9:08 left in the first period.
The Avalanche cut the lead in half when Wilson skated into the Nashville end and beat Rinne with a wrister at the 3:39 mark of the second period.
Colorado tied it when Hejduk scored a power-play goal with 8:48 left in the frame, his team-leading 11th goal of the season.
Three minutes later, Svatos scored his sixth goal to give the Avalanche a 3-2 advantage. Anderson briefly preserved the lead when he made a save on Joel Ward's breakaway chance, but Weber tied it on a power-play goal with 1:53 left in the period.
NOTES: Avalanche D Adam Foote (jaw) missed his fourth straight game. ... Colorado has outshot its opponents four times in 25 games. ... Nashville is 12-0-0 when scoring a power-play goal.
