Mikko Rantanen - Colorado Avalanche,

The Colorado Avalanche LOVE a late goal in St. Louis against the Blues.

We can start with the most recent occurrence, last night on December 11, 2022, the Avalanche paid a visit to the Blues in St. Louis.

Mikko Rantanen opened the scoring in the first, but the Blues took the lead with 2 goals in the third from Tarasenko and Saad to make it 2-1.

With 9 seconds left in the third period, Mikko Rantanen fired one home to tie the game at 2-2, he then went on to score the winner in overtime to gives the Avalanche the win.

Now flashback to the 2021-2022 playoffs, where the Avalanched played in St. Louis in game 7 of the series.

A back and forth game, Faulk scored first for the Blues, then Compher tied it for the Avalanche, then Kyrou took the lead for the Blues, then Compher tied it again.

2-2 late in the third, both teams battling for the winner. Darren Helm ends up firing one in with 6 seconds left on the clock in the third period to put the Avalanche up 3-2, winning the game and the series for the Avalanche.

Now we can head back to game 5 of this series which took place in St. Louis, this one was a more eventful game, but a less important goal.

The score was 4-3 Avalanche going into the third period, 10 minutes in Nazem Kadri fires one home to give the Avalanche a 5-3 lead.

The Blues pulled their goalie, and with only 2 seconds left on the clock Mikko Rantanen shot it into the empty net to give the Avalanche a 6-3 win.

That makes it 3 games in a row where the Avalanche have scored a goal in the final seconds in St. Louis, an insane pattern considering only 1 of them was an empty netter, with one being the game winner, and one being the game tying goal.
