EDMONTON, ALBERTA – It won’t be a sweep, at least. Avs win 6-4 in a crazy game. Let’s do some grades:
Gabe Landeskog (B+) – Scored a critical goal, one that gave the Avs a 3-1 lead in the second period. But he took a bit of a bad penalty in the third period, elbowing Jamie Benn in the head. Landeskog is to be commended for trying to stick up for teammate Nathan MacKinnon, whom Benn tried to run right before that with a big hit. But you gotta pick your spots better. Led all players with 12 hits.
