MacKinnon scored a goal on five shots and dished two assists in Friday's 8-0 drubbing of the Blues. MacKinnon's goal and one of his assists came on the power play. The 25-year-old superstar was kept quiet in Wednesday's first meeting with the Blues, but he responded in a big way Friday. MacKinnon hasn't produced less than 93 points in a season over the last three years, although it'll be tough to hit that mark in 2020-21's 56-game campaign. He should still exceed a point-per game with a large share of his offense coming with the man advantage.
MacKinnon had four shots on net over a forward-high 19:24 of ice time in Wednesday's 4-1 loss to St. Louis. MacKinnon was silenced by goalie Jordan Binnington and not on the ice for the Avalanche's lone goal, a power play tally by Andre Burakovsky. MacKinnon and the Avalanche will look to shake off the loss when the teams meet again in Denver on Friday.
MacKinnon racked up nine goals and 25 points through 15 games in the 2020 postseason. Despite his team being eliminated by Dallas in Round 2, MacKinnon still sits third in playoff points behind Tampa's Nikita Kucherov (28 in 21 games) and Brayden Point (26 in 19). The Nova Scotia native has become one of the hockey's most exciting players and, at just 25 years old, he figures to keep scoring at over a point-per-game rate for years to come.
MacKinnon scored an empty-net goal and added an assist in Wednesday's 4-1 win over the Stars in Game 6. MacKinnon had a beauty of a pass to Mikko Rantanen for the Avalanche's third goal of the contest before adding more insurance with his empty-netter. The two-point effort gave MacKinnon 25 (nine goals, 16 helpers) during his 14-game point streak to start the playoffs. He'll likely need to stretch the streak again in Friday's Game 7 to keep the Avalanche's season going.
MacKinnon netted a goal on six shots, added an assist and went plus-4 in Monday's 6-3 win over the Stars in Game 5. MacKinnon provided the third goal of the Avalanche's five in the first period. He later assisted on Andre Burakovsky's second-period insurance marker. Through 13 games, MacKinnon has yet to be held off the scoresheet. He's complied eight goals, 15 helpers, 60 shots on goal and a plus-11 rating in the playoffs.
