Colorado Avalanche's Gabriel Landeskog's long-term injury could shake up Central Division picture

  Colorado Avalanche's Gabriel Landeskog's long-term injury could shake up Central Division picture Landeskog, 26, has played in all 11 games this season for the Avalanche.With Mikko Rantanen already out week-to-week, Avs captain Gabriel Landeskog is now out indefinitely with an unspecified lower-body injury, the team announced Tuesday.

But let’s go with a vintage Lundqvist performance instead, shall we? Yes, the Hurricanes eventually scored two goals , but Thursday presented a Lundqvist made 45 saves, and if you click over to all situations on Natural Stat Trick’s breakdown of the game, you’ll see that the Hurricanes generated a

The Avalanche score six goals against the Predators in a span of 8:00 to set a club record for the fastest six goals in a game.

1. The Avalanche offense, in general

It feels weird to hand this one to Nathan MacKinnon alone, as he did have the biggest night of any Av (one goal, three assists [two primary] for four points, a whopping 10 shots on goal), but MacKinnon also left the game with an upper-body injury that Colorado has to hope is minor.

Also, it’s difficult to choose between MacKinnon’s four-point game, heavy on assists, and Joonas Donskoi collecting his first career hat trick. As you’d expect with nine goals, including six goals in the span of eight minutes, plenty of Colorado players chipped in. Both Andre Burakovsky and Cale Makar enjoyed one-goal, two-assists performances, for instance.

The Buzzer: Kuznetsov, Kempny lead improbable comeback for Capitals

  The Buzzer: Kuznetsov, Kempny lead improbable comeback for Capitals The Washington Capitals trailed by four goals but still managed to get two points against the Vancouver Canucks.1. Evgeny Kuznetsov and Michal Kempny, Washington Capitals. With 10 seconds to play in the second period on Friday night the Washington Capitals trailed the Vancouver Canucks 5-1. They did not get a single point all night from Alex Ovechkin, Nicklas Backstrom, T.J. Oshie, or John Carlson. And they still won, 6-5. They won thanks to a pair of two-goal efforts from forward Evgeny Kuznetsov and defender Michal Kempny to erase that four-goal deficit and send the game to overtime.

Rangers goaltender Henrik Lundqvist after winning his 400th game on Saturday night as the Rangers defeated the Colorado Avalanche . The crowd serenaded him as the clock wound down, and when the buzzer sounded, he raised his arms into the air. “The last couple of minutes were intense,” said

The Avalanche built the lead on goals from Lundqvist ’s fellow Swede, Gabe Landeskog, and ex-Ranger John Mitchell, but New York got third-period scores from Kevin Klein (his The Avalanche had 17 shots on Lundqvist in the third period, but couldn’t get the tying goal after falling down 3-2.

So let’s just give that entire group the kudos.

The third of Donskoi’s goals was especially pretty:

2. Logan Couture, San Jose Sharks

Couture matched MacKinnon, actually, with one goal and three assists (also two primary) for four points.

You might want to give Couture the nod over any single Avalanche player, as while Colorado’s onslaught eventually felt like stuffing yourself full at a buffet, the Sharks needed every bite.

San Jose finished the first period up 4-0, and ended the second with a 6-2 edge, yet the Wild managed to make it 6-5 with a three-goal final frame. Minnesota even did so while the Sharks had a strange set of power-play opportunities in the third, with a major slashing penalty to Ryan Hartman mixed with some others to … well, let’s just say San Jose had a great chance to kill any drama.

McDavid hat trick leads Oilers past Avalanche 6-2

  McDavid hat trick leads Oilers past Avalanche 6-2 EDMONTON, Alberta (AP) — Connor McDavid had three goals and three assists and Leon Draisaitl had five assists — career highs for points in a game for both players — as the Edmonton Oilers beat the Colorado Avalanche 6-2 on Thursday night. Ryan Nugent-Hopkins had two goals and Zack Kassian also scored for the Oilers (13-6-2), who have won three of four. Andre Burakovsky scored two goals for the Avalanche (11-6-2), who had a three-game winning streak snapped.BOX SCORE: OILERS 6, AVALANCHE 2 The Avalanche started the scoring 1:20 into the first period as Burakovsky beat Oilers goalie Mike Smith with a long wrist shot for his sixth of the season.

The Buzzer : Eichel explodes for Sabres; More history for Caps’ Carlson. As ominous as that seems, it has to be a relief for the Wild to see Eric Staal finally have a breakthrough night on Tuesday. Staal scored two goals (including the 1-0 tally, thus the game-winner) and an assist, with those two goals

Henrik Lundqvist took a huge, polarizing hit from Cody Eakin during tonight’s Dallas Stars – New York Rangers game, briefly leaving the contest. Rick Nash and Mats Zuccarello scored two goals in the third period of what was a pretty nice goalie duel, all things considered.

Couture’s four points ended up being crucial as the Sharks just barely won 6-5. Hey, if you have to work your way out of a sluggish start, sometimes you have to win ugly.

3. Henrik Lundqvist, New York Rangers

There is a slew of strong three-point nights, even beyond the game mentioned above.

But let’s go with a vintage Lundqvist performance instead, shall we? Yes, the Hurricanes eventually scored two goals, but Thursday presented a classic night where Hank was King again.

Lundqvist made 45 saves, and if you click over to all situations on Natural Stat Trick’s breakdown of the game, you’ll see that the Hurricanes generated a whopping 22 high-danger chances. The Hurricanes peppered Hank, yet he left Carolina salty with a loss.

Highlight of the Night

Chicago Blackhawks forward Alex DeBrincat shows that sometimes you can get the job done while falling down on the job:

The NHL’s YouTube page collected a bunch of OT goals from Thursday, too, if you need some more highlights:

Marchand, Bergeron lead Bruins to 7-4 win over Rangers

  Marchand, Bergeron lead Bruins to 7-4 win over Rangers NEW YORK (AP) — Even though they trailed after one period, the Boston Bruins weren't too worried. They knew they were playing well and the scoring would come. And it sure did. Brad Marchand had two goals and three assists, the Boston Bruins scored four times in the second period and went on to beat the New York Rangers 7-4 on Sunday night. "We did dominate that period," Marchand said of the first period that ended with the Rangers leading 1-0 despite Boston holding a 10-7 edge on shots. "They had some shots on the power play but other than that, they didn't have much. ... We knew if we continued to play the same way we were going to break out, and we did.

An electron avalanche is a process in which a number of free electrons in a transmission medium are subjected to strong acceleration by an electric field and subsequently collide with other atoms of the medium, thereby ionizing them (impact ionization).

Henrik Lundqvist credited his teammates on Friday for their role in helping him reach 399 career wins. The Rangers scored three goals in the third period, including Rick Nash's game-winner, to erase a 2-1 deficit on their way to a 4-2 victory over the Colorado Avalanche for their fifth win in a row.

Factoids

  • The Penguins halted the Islanders’ 10-game winning streak, and did the same to the franchise’s record 15-game run in 1981-82. They’re the fourth team in NHL history to end two 10+ game winning streaks by the same franchise, via NHL PR. This post has more on the Penguins’ rally from behind 3-0 to beat the Isles in OT.
  • If you got to your seats (at an arena, or your couch) too late and missed the beginning of games, you were gambling on Thursday. Five different games began with a goal within the first 60 seconds, which ties a single-day league record, according to NHL PR.
  • Via Sportsnet: that J.T. Miller has scored at least one goal against all 31 NHL teams. Not bad for someone who’s still only 26.
  • Mike Babcock reached 700 wins, and Sportsnet notes that he’s the third-quickest to get to 700 W’s, doing so in 1,295 games. Ahead of Babcock: Joel Quenneville (1,281) and Scotty Bowman (1,192).
