Evan’s Daily: MacK is Back, Avalanche Leaky
The Colorado Avalanche got Nathan MacKinnon back in the lineup, but it wasn’t enough, as they dropped their third straight game. The Golden Knights lost another player to injury, while Alexander Ovechkin notched (another) hat trick. The Sharks gave it their all and still couldn’t find a victory, and the Bruins got a spark from a smaller defenseman.
