DENVER — Rickard Rakell scored with 1.2 seconds remaining in overtime, Ryan Miller stopped 32 shots and the Anaheim Ducks snapped the Colorado Avalanche's seven-game winning streak with a 4-3 victory. 

Rakell's shot appeared to deflect off the stick of Avalanche defenseman Samuel Girard and past goaltender Pavel Francouz. 

It was Rakell's first goal since Jan. 31. Sam Steel, Andrew Agozzino and Brendan Guhle also added goals for the Ducks. 

Despite losing 6-2 in Chicago the night before, Anaheim kept up with the speedy Avalanche. 

The 39-year-old Miller earned career NHL win number 386. 

Vladislav Namestnikov, Gabriel Landeskog and Nathan MacKinnon scored for Colorado.
