Mikko Rantanen, Colorado Avalanche trample Chicago Blackhawks in star's return

Six plays defined the Blackhawks’ loss to the Avalanche

Six plays defined the Blackhawks’ loss to the Avalanche

He is one of the best players in the world. He is still so young that he will feel much better.

Center Nathan MacKinnon, who performed between wingers Donskoi and Rantanen in the essential two periods, had a objective and two assists to up his group-lead in targets (17), assists (25) and functions (42).

LAST 10 GAMES: Blackhawks: 5-3-2, averaging 3.3 goals, 5.6 assists, 3.5 penalties and 8.4 penalty minutes while allowing 2.4 goals per game with a.935 save percentage. "Colorado is a ideal example, they've had multiple guys out for a long time and they continue to find ways to win and get points and that's what we need to do as well". On Saturday he scored his first four-point game since December 11, 2018. He contributed quickly, picking up an assist on Kadri's first goal that tied the game.

After the Avalanche found the back of the net three times in just over three minutes to grab a 3-1 advantage, words began to fly in Colorado's defensive zone between Blackhawks forward Alex DeBrincat and Avalanche defender Samuel Girard. He didn't play in the third period.

"He really put the team on his back", coach Jared Bednar said Friday. "He tweaked his leg a couple of times and got a little exhausted, so I saw no reason to bring him out for the third time in a 7-2 game, he's ready to go".

President Dana Atkinson told The Canadian Press the company helped Oblokulov buy his plane so he could travel with his family. A GoFundMe page raising money for the Oblokulov family had raised more than $16,000 dollars by Friday afternoon.

Patrick Kane scored his 14th goal late in the third round to extend his point series to 15 games, the longest of the season in the National Hockey League. Kadri hit at 7:53 am and started a series of three goals in a time of 3:15.

Chicago had a chance to get back into it with 58 seconds of a 5-on-3 at the end of the first, but couldn't beat Philipp Grubauer (26 saves). Colorado then killed Ryan Graves' double and Donskoi scored 15 seconds after Graves came out of the box. It was his second goal in three games after he went 91 games without one.

"He's a big part of our team", Colliton said of Keith after the game. "I don't think you'll always close players like that, but you have to make sure you're doing things right from a control point of view".

Rantanen missed the previous 16 games with a lower-body injury he sustained October 21 against the St. Louis Blues. He is listed as "day by day". "Obviously a huge game against St. Louis coming up at home, Stanley Cup champs coming into our building, so I got to be better for us".
