Nathan MacKinnon has a point in every game this season, five-goals, seven-assists in the Avalanche’s nine games. That’s helped the Avalanche to get out of the gate at 7-1-1. Maybe MacKinnon can replace Flacco at QB in Denver. Colorado went 4-0 to begin the season, with all those games at home. They end a six game road trip on Friday in Vegas. The Avs have scored four or more goals in six of their games, they’re second in the NHL in goals-per-game with 4.00, only Nashville at 4.22 has scored more per-game.
Detroit started the season well, 3-1-0, Mantha had a four goal game. Things were looking up in the Motor City. The Wings have now lost five straight, being outscored 22-7, their PK has struggled of late, 10 of 17 in the past four games. Mantha had six goals during the teams 3-1-0 start. The entire roster has seven goals over the last five games.
Anybody in Boston worried when David Pastrnak had no points and just three shots on net through the Bruins first two games? Pastrnak has a current seven game point streak, ten goals and seven assists, he’s scored in 6 of the 7 games, multi-point games in six of the games as well.
Jonathan Quick had a rough start to the season, his first three starts, he was 0-3-0, 6.43GAA, .793SV%. He’s allowed three goals in his last two starts. Quick was 0-3-1 last October before he got hurt. He’s not a Quick starter. Pun in tended
