Avalanche's Mikko Rantanen: Continues offensive burst with two more points
Rantanen scored a goal and added an assist in Tuesday's 5-3 loss to the Predators.
He scuffled through his first seven games after being promoted, but the signs of a breakout were there. Well, it's in full force now -- Rantanen has racked up three goals and nine points over his last nine games. The 20-year-old Finn may not maintain such a pace, but he's being given every opportunity, as Tuesday's 18:23 of ice time is well in line with how the Avs have used Rantanen since returning him to the NHL.
