Avalanche 7, Blackhawks 3

Avalanche 7, Blackhawks 3

Two fine Finns were in full force Saturday, with countrymen Joonas Donskoi and Mikko Rantanen combining for three goals and eight points as the Avalanche completed a consecutive-night, home-and-home sweep over the Chicago Blackhawks.

The avalanche entered Chicago on Friday and defeated the Blackhawks 5-2 at the United Center. On Saturday, Colorado put the trio in the net in a span of 3:15.

Power-play opportunities_Colorado 1 of 3; Chicago 0 of 1. After a streak of five games without victories in early November, Colorado has won seven of its last 10 games and two straight overall since losing to the Toronto Maple Leafs last weekend.

Missing the last 16 games after suffering a lower-body injury on October 21 against the Blues, the 23-year-old winger put together a four-point effort in the landslide win - and he only played two periods. It only took him a few minutes to show that he had not missed a beat. He contributed quickly, picking up an assist on Kadri's first goal that tied the game. It's exciting to get one of the best players in the world back on our team.

Lehner was 2-1-1 in his past 4 starts with a.942 save percentage and his.938 save percentage in 13 games prior to Saturday led the league.

Rantanen, who is making a group-excessive $12 million this season, did not play in the third duration, presumably for precautionary reasons. "He tweaked his leg a little bit a couple of times and started to get a little exhausted so I didn't see a reason to bring him out for the third in a 7-2 game".

MacKinnon gave the Avalanche a 1-0 lead at 0:59 of the first period.

At the same time, the risk of transferring the virus to other people is diminished, it added, as reported by the TASR newswire. As of 2018, 4 100 new cases were recorded, down from 4 700 new cases in 2015.


"I felt good, honestly", Lehner said. Chicago has given up 15 power-play goals, killing 80.8% of opponent chances.

Dominik Kubalik scored his eighth goal of the season 36 seconds after Jost's goal and Kane scored in the third game in a 5-on-3 win at 1438, but the game was out of reach.

"I don't think you're really thinking about [the point streak] at that point", Kane said.

Blackhawks defenseman Duncan Keith left the game in the second period after he sustained a groin injury.

This obviously would be great news for an injury-riddled team that has managed to more than stay afloat without him, Gabriel Landeskog, Erik Johnson, Andre Burakovsky, Matt Calvert and Colin Wilson.
