ANAHEIM www.officialkings.com , Calif. (AP) — A few ticks left on the clock were all Mikko Rantanen needed to make a winner of the Colorado Avalanche.Rantanen’s power-play slap shot with 1.3 seconds remaining in overtime gave the Avalanche a 4-3 victory Sunday over the slumping Anaheim Ducks.Colorado overcame a 3-1 deficit to hand the Ducks their 12th loss in 15 games. Rantanen added two assists to his eighth goal of the season, increasing his NHL-leading total to 32 points.“He’s a highly competitive individual player,” Colorado coach Jared Bednar said. “He wants to be on the ice all the time.”Nathan MacKinnon had a goal and two assists, and Philipp Grubauer stopped 30 shots for the Avalanche.“He made some really big saves,” Rantanen said. “One breakaway save, I think that was the highlight. He kept it a 3-2 game. It was a really good game from him. He made some big saves in the OT, too.”Sven Andrighetto and Gabriel Landeskog scored the other Colorado goals.Brandon Montour, Ryan Getzlaf and Ondrej Kase scored for Anaheim. Backup goalie Ryan Miller made 38 saves.Landeskog tied it 3-all at 11:20 of the third period, taking a nice feed from behind the net.“We kind of felt like we had more to give going into the third period,” Bednar said. “We come up with a big power-play goal at the end of the second to get within striking distance, then came out and won the third.”The injury-riddled Ducks played with four rookie defenders and had to use Miller when normal starter John Gibson came down with the flu. They called up three players from their development team in San Diego before the game.“We have all the confidence in the world with guys coming up,” Montour said.
