Colorado Avalanche                                                    

The Colorado Avalanche will welcome the Minnesota Wild to Ball Arena for an NHL game on Wednesday. The Colorado Avalanche won 1-5 in their last game over the Ducks. Nathan MacKinnon had a goal and an assist in his 700th NHL game and the Colorado Avalanche won their third straight game, beating the Anaheim Ducks 5-1 Monday night. The two-point night continued what has been a great month for the All-Star center. MacKinnon — who became the eighth player in Avalanche/Nordiques franchise history to appear in 700 games — is tied for second in the league with 24 points in March. He also has 10 goals, which are tied for third.

“The more important the game, the more he’s going to show up for his team. It’s just another level of determination,” Avalanche coach Jared Bednar said of MacKinnon. “It’s probably hard to maintain or stay up like through the course of 82 games, but when the games get big, he’s the guy that is going to show up for you.” Bowen Byram also had a goal and an assist for the Avalanche, who are one point behind Dallas for the Central Division lead. Jack Johnson, Valeri Nichushkin and Samuel Girard also scored for Colorado, and Cale Makar had two assists. Jonas Johansson stopped 29 shots.

Anaheim, which went 1-6-1 on its eight-game homestand, got its lone goal from Derek Grant. John Gibson made 39 saves. Trevor Zegras suffered a lower-body injury during the second period and did not return. “I think everyone gets frustrated when you’re losing. It doesn’t matter if you’re playing a good team or not,” said Jakob Silfverberg, who had the assist on Grant’s goal. “We knew we were going to have a tough game tonight, so we were just going to try to outwork them out there, but it was a tough game tonight and they are a good team.”

Minnesota Wild

The Minnesota Wild on the other hand won 5-1 against the Kraken in their last game. Matt Boldy scored his second hat trick in nine days as the Minnesota Wild defeated the Seattle Kraken 5-1 Monday night in St. Paul, Minn. Jake Middleton and Ryan Hartman also scored and Marcus Johansson, Jared Spurgeon and Joel Eriksson Ek had two assists apiece for the Central Division-leading Wild, who improved to 15-1-4 in their past 20 games and pulled within three points of Western Conference-leading Vegas. Goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury made 35 saves.

Jaden Schwartz scored for the Kraken, who lead the West’s wild-card race. Goalie Philipp Grubauer stopped 9 of 13 shots before being pulled early in the third after Boldy scored to make it 4-0. Martin Jones stopped 6 of 7 shots the rest of the way as Seattle had an eight-game road point streak snapped (7-0-1).
