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.

Nathan MacKinnon scored a goal and picked up an assist in Saturday's 5-4 loss to the Nashville Predators in Game 2.

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.

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.

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.
