  • Avalanche's Nathan MacKinnon: Extends point streak

    MacKinnon scored a goal on four shots, assisted on a power-play strike and delivered one hit in Thursday's 5-0 win over Chicago.

The goal was MacKinnon's 100th point, marking the second straight season he's crossed that threshold. The two-point night extended his point streak (four goals, 11 assists) to eight games.

    MacKinnon (face) is expected to play Tuesday versus Washington, Jesse Montano of Guerilla Sports reports.

    MacKinnon exited Saturday's loss to Florida after suffering an apparent facial injury, but he should slot into his usual spots on the top line and first power-play unit against the Capitals. The 28-year-old pivot has racked up an eye-popping 32 goals and 85 points through 53 contests this season, good for second place in NHL scoring behind Tampa Bay's Nikita Kucherov, who has 89 points through 52 games.
