Rantanen Avalanche kraken

CHN took a deep look into why Mikko Rantanen was so angry in Sunday’s loss, and the Calgary Flames beat the Central Division leading Stars in a wild game.

The Colorado Avalanche fell apart late in their game Sunday, but star Mikko Rantanen lost his cool at the end of the second period.

In a game Avalanche fans probably didn’t know who they wanted to win, the Flames beat the Stars on a late goal to avoid overtime.

All that and more in this Tuesday edition of Evan’s Daily.

After watching it unfold in the arena, I decided to take a closer look at the television replay and figure out why Mikko Rantanen might have been so upset at the end of the second period. Take a look here. (+)

I answered some mailbag questions, and obviously the situation around Gabriel Landeskog came up.

The Avalanche recalled Jonas Johansson. Could he start on Tuesday?

The Calgary Flames were in desperate need of a win, and they got one. Tyler Toffoli scored the game winning goal with under 10 seconds remaining to beat the Stars in regulation. The Flames make up some ground on the Avalanche, but the Stars become a little easier to catch. At least the game didn’t go to overtime.

The opponents for the Avalanche on Tuesday will be the San Jose Sharks. They went into Winnipeg and pulled out an overtime victory, but old friend Jacob MacDonald was hurt in the process.

The Islanders are somehow surviving without Mat Barzal. How are they doing it?

Everything Boston touches turns to gold this season. One of their newest acquisitions, Dmitry Orlov, won player of the week. I guess we’ll see if it all carries over into the playoffs.

Because of his injury situation this year, the Canadiens could re-sign Sean Monahan to a special contract this summer.
