Avalanche blows 2-0 lead, fall for Rangers in regulation

Fourth-line forward Greg McKegg got two shifts over the final 2:18 of regulation, with the Rangers protecting a one-goal lead and Colorado with a 6-on-5 advantage until Artemi Panarin's empty-net goal with 28 seconds left.

The Colorado goals came two minutes apart, through centers J.T. Compher and Nathan MacKinnon.

The Avalanche, who came in averaging an NHL-best 3.63 goals per game, scored twice on their first three shots.

This season, New Jersey has the 28th offense in the National Hockey League that averages 2.55 goals per contest, and they are facing New York's 25th defense that allows 3.31 goals per game.

At 15:23 of the first period, a nice passing game between DeAngelo and Zibanejad resulted in Zibanejad's 17th goal of the season. After agreeing to a seven-year, $81.5 million contract with the Rangers this past summer, Panarin has lit it up in his first half-season in NY - amassing 58 points (23 goals, 35 assists), 14 power-play points and 128 shots on goal in 42 games.

Compher tied it 3-all when he converted a pass across the front of the crease from Burakovsky for his seventh with 8 1/2 minutes left in the middle period.

The New Jersey Devils were on a good form of three consecutive wins for the first time this season but lost the previous two games. "It's one of my favorite places to play at, the history behind it, the team we're playing against, and the circumstances we're in". Strome has five goals and four assists in his last six games.

Avalanche backup goalie Pavel Francouz started against the Islanders, so regular starter Philipp Grubauer will be back between the pipes on Tuesday.

Rangers: 3-6-1, averaging 3.3 goals, 5.3 assists, 5.1 penalties and 12.3 penalty minutes while giving up 3.7 goals per game with a.888 save percentage. Rangers defenceman Ryan Lindgren knocked down Colorado's Joonas Donskoi with a hard hit near the side boards.

(2/2) While there was significant head contact on this play, Lindgren took a proper angle of approach, did not extend outward or upward and hit through Donskoi's core.

These Metropolitan Division rivals faced twice this season, and the series is now tied at 1-1. Compher has four goals in his last six games.

Colorado returns home for a home game with five games starting at 7 p.m. MST on Friday against the Pittsburgh Penguins.
