Happy Snowmageddon, and happy night to you, Avs fan. Another win over the Kings, a fairly routine 4-1 win. Avs were just too fast and too skilled for the Kings – though they played a pretty strong game in some respects. Avs move into third place in the division with the win, ahead of St. Louis – and they have three games in have two games in hand on the Blues. Let’s do some grades:
Gabe Landeskog (B) – Solid game for the captain, who chipped in with an assist. He inadvertently screened Philipp Grubauer on the Kings’ only goal, his only bad moment of the contest.
Nathan MacKinnon (B) – Got his second straight empty-netter, courtesy of Mikko Rantanen. That was one of his three shots on the game. He deserves some easy goals like that.
