With MacKinnon held shot-less, Avalanche display depth in Game 1 win



Much has been said about the depth of this Colorado Avalanche team this year. That depth was put on display again — as it’s been many times throughout the season — in the Avs’ Game 1 win over Arizona. In a game where Nathan MacKinnon was held without a shot on net, the Avalanche still prevailed.

When all was said and done, Colorado had fired 40 shots on Coyotes netminder Darcy Kuemper. No, not a one came from MacKinnon, who is the NHL’s leading shot-taker over the past two seasons.
