Resilient Avalanche rallies to beat the Minnesota Wild 4-3 in overtime to win Game 5 and take a 3-2 series lead. Game 6 is Monday in St. Paul and it looks like Colorado leading scorer Matt Duchene is scheduled to play. Today marks the month anniversary of when he strained an MCL knee ligament, and the sixth consecutive day he has been skating. The morning skate was his first full skate with his teammates since the injury.

“We’re going to take a serious look at it,” Avs coach Patrick Roy said of Duchene’s Game 6 availability.

First three Avs goals score on special teams — shorthanded, 4-on-4 and 6-on-5 (advantage). The power play is 1-of-18 in this series (and the only goal came on an empty Wild net) but the PK has been terrific.

“We believe,” hero Nathan MacKinnon said after scoring the OT goal. “Even when we got that (Gabe Lanedeskog) penalty with four minutes left (in regulation) we thought we would tied it up.
