MacKinnon set up two goals in Saturday's 7-1 rout of Los Angeles. Mack has 70 points in just 48 games, a pace that would see him flirt with 120 points this season. And remarkably, he's not the team's top scorer. That title belongs to Mikko Rantanen. MacKinnon and Rantanen are among the best in the league. Enjoy this run.
MacKinnon scored a power-play goal and set up Nikita Zadorov's goal, but his team took a 5-2 loss to Ottawa on Wednesday. MacKinnon continues to be a gold mine for his owners, as he's on pace to finish with 118 points when all is said and done. Amazingly, this ended what could technically be called a "slump" by his standards, as he'd been held scoreless in consecutive games for just the second time this year prior to Wednesday. He's scored in 38 of Colorado's 48 contests this season.
MacKinnon scored a man-advantage goal and added two assists, including one on the power play, while recording eight shots on net in a 6-1 victory against the Rangers on Friday. The 23-year-old has scored a point in 13 of the last 14 games and posted multiple points four times during that span. MacKinnon has registered at least three points eight times this season, and his eight shots on net tied a season high. It's actually MacKinnon's second game of 2018-19 with three points and eight shots. He's having an absolute monster season, and after Friday, he has 25 goals, 63 points and a league-leading 194 shots on net through 42 contests.
MacKinnon helped set up his team's only goal -- a J.T. Compher power-play score -- in a 2-1 loss to Vegas on Thursday. MacKinnon is actually in a bit of a slump by his lofty standards, as he's "only" scored five points in his past five games. The fact that a point per game can even facetiously be called a slump underscores just how dominant he's been this year. There's no need to worry.
MacKinnon extended his point streak to seven games by tallying two assists in Wednesday's 2-1 win over the Canadiens. MacKinnon's first point of the night came on a Carey Price gaffe. The Habs' netminder had his pass intercepted by MacKinnon, who quickly fed Mikko Rantanen for a tap-in goal to tie the game 1-1. He added another primary helper on Gabriel Landeskog's game-winning goal. Colorado's big three continue to be the talk of the league with a combined 155 points this season. For MacKinnon, this was his 18th game with two or more points in 2018-19. He ranks second with 55 points and also leads the league with 153 shots on goal. These types of performances have become his new norm.
