There have been four games played in the third round of the NHL playoffs, and all four of them have gone to overtime. On Sunday, the Golden Knights took care of business again on home ice, putting all the pressure on the Stars.
With the Avalanche, we took a look back at the monster year from Nathan MacKinnon, where he shattered all his career highs.
All that and more in this Monday edition of Evan’s Daily.

A look back at the previous week with all the content on CHN, including if Jonathan Drouin makes sense. The mention of his name has brought out some strong opinions both ways.
From January 1 on, Nathan MacKinnon may have been the best player in the world. That doesn’t mean he is the best player in the world, but for about four months, he sure looked like it. We took a look back at his year in this edition of season in review.
Patrick Roy definitely isn’t coming back to the Avalanche after how he left, but his Quebec Remparts won the QMJHL championship on Sunday. Does that increase the odds of him returning to the NHL?
The Dallas Stars lost a ton of overtime games in the regular season, inflating their record a little bit. In both games, that’s come back to bite them. The Golden Knights won their second straight overtime game, and the series now heads to Dallas with Vegas up 2-0.
