Nathan MacKinnon opened the scoring just 11 seconds into Saturday's 3-2 overtime loss against the Flames for his sixth tally of the season.

MacKinnon has scored a goal in five straight games to match the longest goal scoring streak of his career. The goal-scoring streak has matched the franchise record to start a season set by Mats Sundin during the 1992-93 season when the franchise was located in Quebec. His tally 11 seconds into the game was also the quickest since Antti Laaksonen set the franchise record just eight seconds into the game against the Columbus Blue Jackets on Feb. 10, 2006.

Nathan MacKinnon scored two goals in a 6-1 win against the Sabres on Thursday night.

That’s now five goals and six points in four games for the 23-year old to start the season. MacKinnon appears to be building on his career year in 2017-18 where he collected 39 goals and 97 points in 74 games. The duo of he and Rantanen continues to be a force for the Avs as the latter registered three assists in the win bringing his point total to seven on the season. Kerfoot, Soderberg, Jost and Wilson also scored in the win while Barrie collected two assists.

Nathan MacKinnon scored a goal during Tuesday’s 5-2 loss to the Columbus Blue Jackets.

It was a very nice goal from MacKinnon who let go of a wicked wrister to beat Sergei Bobrovsky. In fact, MacKinnon had a great all-around game and arguably should have had a hat trick if it wasn’t for Bobrovsky’s amazing play in goal. With his goal tonight, MacKinnon has tied Owen Nolan and Matt Duchene for the most goals scored in franchise history before a player’s 24th birthday (117). The 23-year-old forward has scored a goal in every game so far this season and has four points through the opening three games. Carl Soderberg also scored in the loss.

Nathan MacKinnon and the Colorado Avalanche fell 5-0 to an energized Nashville Predators squad in Game 6 on Sunday.

MacKinnon and the Avs could not weather the storm from the defending Western Conference Champs who have bigger aspirations this season. The Avs offence was quiet and Pekka Rinne was sharp on the road to silence MacKinnon, who had six points in the first five games and 97 during the season.

Playing four-on-four hockey, MacKinnon outworked Filip Forsberg on the puck before surprising Pekka Rinne with a quick backhander. MacKinnon then followed that up with an assist after Gabriel Landeskog tipped home his point shot to get the Avalanche to within one midway through the third period. It's a tough loss for the Avalanche who opened the scoring again but just couldn't do enough defensively without Erik Johnson and Samuel Girard in the lineup to come away with the win. The series heads back to Colorado with the Avalanche down 2-0.
Apr 14 - 6:04 PM

Nathan MacKinnon returned to practice on Tuesday morning.

MacKinnon missed Monday's practice because he took a maintenance day. "Feel pretty good," MacKinnon said. "Rest day, long season. We played a tough game Saturday, so I took an extra day off. We don't play until Thursday, so I took advantage of it." The Avalanche will need MacKinnon to be at his best if they want to upset the Nashville Predators in the first round. He had 39 goals and an incredible 97 points in 74 games this season.

Nathan MacKinnon went scoreless in Monday's 3-1 loss at Los Angeles, although he did dish out two hits to make his presence felt.

The entire MGM line (MacKinnon, Gabriel Landeskog and Mikko Rantanen) were blanked in this playoff-like game against the Kings. MacKinnon has no goals in eight straight outings and just two assists over his past six contests. Still, MacKinnon leads the NHL in points per game (1.32) despite his recent cool stretch.
