Avalanche Vs. Predators Final Score: Colorado Loses 4-2 After Comeback Falls Short

The Colorado Avalanche ended up on the wrong end of a failed comeback on Thursday night, losing 4-2 against the Nashville Predators. In an up-and-down game for the Avalanche, an early deficit proved to be too much to overcome despite Colorado actually scoring the first goal of the game.

Just over a minute into the game, the Avalanche took a 1-0 lead on James McGinn's 16th goal of the season. The advantage didn't last long, though, and soon enough Colorado itself was looking at a deficit.

Less than two minutes after McGinn's goal, Nashville tied the game on Mike Fisher's 20th goal of the season, and Brandon Yip gave the Predators the lead just minutes later with his second goal of the year.

Paul Stastny eventually cut Nashville's lead to 3-2 early in the third period, but Colorado wasn't able to get another goal before the Predators put the game away with an empty net goal in the final minute.

The loss drops Colorado to 35-30-4 on the season. Nashville is 39-21-7 following the win.
