I’LL ‘AV ANOTHER

By Marc Lawrence, PlaybookSports.com — When a team in the Stanley Cup playoffs allows 6 goals in a contest it’s almost certainly met with a loss.

Not when Colorado edged Edmonton, 8-6, in their NHL playoff series opener Tuesday night. The high-octane offenses didn’t disappoint in the barnburner of a Game 1 between the Avalanche and Oilers.

Both sides went to work with a five-goal first period and a six-goal second period in the eventual 8-6 final score. Nathan MacKinnon scored his team-leading ninth goal of the playoffs.

Our guess is they won’t smell 14 goals tonight.
