  • Avalanche's Mikko Rantanen: Strikes on power play

    Rantanen scored a power-play goal, doled out four hits and went minus-2 in Monday's 6-5 overtime win over the Oilers in Game 4.

    Rantanen gave the Avalanche a 5-4 lead with 5:13 left in the third period, but that lead didn't last.

Rantanen finished the Western Conference Finals with four goals, two helpers and 16 shots on net in four contests. The 25-year-old lined up as the second-line center with Nazem Kadri (thumb) out -- Rantanen has played a little center this year and could continue in that role over a more natural pivot like J.T. Compher, who remains on the third line. Rantanen has five goals, 12 helpers, 40 shots on net, 30 hits and a plus-2 rating through 14 playoff contests.

  • Avalanche's Mikko Rantanen: Nabs helper in win

    Rantanen notched an assist, four shots on goal and two hits in Tuesday's 3-2 overtime win over the Blues in Game 1.

He's often had a playmaking edge to his game, but his shot volume is at two per game in the playoffs, compared to 3.4 per game in the regular season, which helps to explain why he hasn't lit the lamp yet.
