Avalanche provides memorable moments in dominating Game 3 win

Avs defenseman Cale Makar will make NHL debut in Game 3

Avs defenseman Cale Makar will make NHL debut in Game 3

Philipp Grubauer was credited with 27 saves.

Makar, who grew up a Flames fan in Calgary, was the fourth overall pick by the Avalanche in 2017. On a power play, Bennett backed out front from behind the net before zipping a no-look backhand pass across to Andersson, who had an empty net.

Calgary Flames goaltender Mike Smith stops a shot by the Colorado Avalanche in the first period of Game 3 of a first-round NHL hockey playoff series Monday, April 15, 2019, in Denver. Celebrating in the crowd were Makar's parents. "After that conversation, I felt a lot better about putting him in the lineup and giving him a chance to play". "These games get tougher and tougher as you move forward, we have to be ready and realize that".

"He's so smooth and so agile", MacKinnon said. They've won four of their last five games at Colorado and were 8-0-1 in their last nine against the Avalanche prior to Game 2.

Game 4 is Wednesday night in Denver. "We made that team look and feel good all night".

Things got physical in the third period with the game out of hand. "That's great. You want a player to be aggressive, assertive, and I was really impressed by that".

Quickly skating over to congratulate Makar was Avalanche captain Gabriel Landeskog.

"I thought it got away from us early and obviously we chased the game the rest of the game", Flames coach Bill Peters said.

Those actions led to genuine concerns that the rules-based system for managing global trade may be facing serious threats.

Three of the four Western Conference opening-round series were saw-offs through two games.

Sam Bennett was the best player on the ice for the Flames on Monday night, and that's becoming a bit of a theme in these playoffs. He signed his entry-level contract Sunday before joining the Avalanche for his first practice in Denver on Monday morning.

Makar became the seventh player in National Hockey League history and first defenseman to score a goal while making his debut in the Stanley Cup playoffs, according to the National Hockey League communications department.

Makar's whirlwind weekend also included winning the Hobey Baker Memorial Award as college hockey's top player Friday night. His power-play goals came at 8:26 and 13:34 of the first period - the first with a quick wrist shot from the right circle and the latter with a one-time slap shot from the left circle.

The team couldn't stay out of the box, and were punished for it by an Avs team that finished with the seventh-best powerplay in the regular season.

While in college, he caught his fair share of Avalanche games.

It might have been a little odd when Makar first hopped the boards and looked across the ice at those same players he was worshipping a couple years back, but he sounds like the type of guy who was going to get over it quickly. "Just go out there and do what they need me to do".

Tkachuk slid into the boards in the second period and lost a blade on his skate. Tyson Barrie has 7 points over the last 10 games for Colorado.
