Sunday Avs and NHL notes; MacKinnon “Oh boy” moment gone viral



Happy Sunday to all. If you missed the details of the resumption of last night’s Avs-Golden Knights game, we had Scott MacDonald there on the scene with a good write-up.

That was a great win for the Avs, and now they have a mostly healthy team. Well, except for a very good defenseman and a backup goalie, which is kind of an important position. But let’s move on:

  • The “Oh boy” moment from Alex Pietrangelo has officially gone viral

Superstreak Bonus!
  • Avs are off today, but will play the Golden Knights again tomorrow at Ball Arena. Winning three out of four from Vegas would be huge, but it’s gonna be another tough game regardless.


  • It appears to be a race between Auston Matthews and Connor McDavid for the Hart Trophy right now. My vote would be for Matthews. Lots of hockey to be played though. (Sportsnet)
  • Nice write-up by Dan Kingerski on Sidney Crosby, who played his 1,000th NHL game last night (Pittsburgh Hockey Now)
  • Should the Nashville Predators just tank it, to get a good pick? (Hockey News)
  • Did you see this little move by Cale Makar last night?

  • Are the San Jose Sharks actually on the right path after all? (San Jose Hockey Now)
  • When could Flyers fans be allowed back at games at the Wells Fargo Center? (Philly Hockey Now)

Here is a hypothetical question Adrian, if Matthews scored 50 goals or McDavid averages 2 points per game (112 points) who gets MVP?

Don Moore

Adrian – Any thoughts on the Carrier hit on Landeskog before their first goal? Looked bad on the relay but haven’t heard any talk about it?

Richard Trujillo

Anyone have an idea where we can buy one of those sweet jackets the Avalanche coaches were wearing on Saturday?
