The Nashville Predators pulled off one of the more improbable wins in franchise history Monday night, scoring two goals in the final 37 seconds to seal a come-from-behind 4-3 win over the Colorado Avalanche at Bridgestone Arena. It’s the Predators second straight win after losing their previous four in a row.

Down 3-2 in the final minute, the Predators pulled goalie Juuse Saros for an extra attacker — a move that paid off when Filip Forsberg scored his second goal of the game to tie it 3-3. It was Forsberg’s third two-goal game in his last five outings. He now has a team-high nine goals, eight of which have come in his last seven games.

Sixteen seconds later, Yakov Trenin pushed a rebound through the crease past Avalanche goalie Alexandar Georgiev for the go-ahead goal with just 22 seconds left in regulation. He’s now scored a goal in back-to-back games.

Saros stopped 25 of 28 shots to pick up his first win since a 3-2 overtime win over the Toronto Maple Leafs on Oct. 28. He had lost his previous five starts.
