The Avalanche collectively beat the Toronto Maple Leafs 4-3 in overtime Friday night. How did they do individually? Let’s break it down:
Mikko Rantanen (A) – The big, likable Finn finished off a great pass from Nathan MacKinnon for a goal and was generally engaged most every shift. He was strong on the puck and lugged it up and down the wall lots.
Nathan MacKinnon (A+) – A goal and two assists and he nearly won it in OT with a blast that got iron instead. He created the 4-on-3 in OT with a breakout that forced Connor Brown to haul him down. Arguably, this was MacK’s best game of the season.
