Avalanche post four goals in 3rd to rout Coyotes
<p>Joonas Donskoi had a goal and an assist, Nathan MacKinnon and 릴게임 Gabriel Landeskog also scored as the Colorado Avalanche beat the Arizona Coyotes 6-2 in Glendale, Ariz., on Saturday night.</p> <p>Philipp Grubauer stopped 22 shots, 릴게임 Tyson Jost, Pierre-Edouard Bellemare and Jacob MacDonald also had goals and Mikko Rantanan, Andre Burakovsky and Samuel Girard had two assists each for the Avalanche.</p> <p>Clayton Keller and Ilya Lyubushkin had goals and Antti Raanta had 35 saves for Arizona, which lost to Colorado on consecutive nights.</p> <p>The Avalanche played without defenseman Cale Makar and 릴게임 forward Matt Calvert, both of whom were sidelined with upper-body injuries.
Both are considered day-to-day.</p> <p>Colorado got on the board first when MacKinnon skated down the left side, avoided a check as he skated into the left circle and then beat Raanta with a shot to the top right corner at 12:16 of the first. It was his fifth of the season.</p> <p>The Coyotes got the next goal when Niklas Hjalmarsson stole a clearing pass at the blue line, sent a pass to the slot and Keller’s leaping redirect went over Grubauer’s blocker and in at 14:13 of the second.
It was Keller’s sixth of the season.</p> <p>MacDonald gave Colorado the lead back when he skated behind the Arizona net and put a wraparound shot off Raanta’s right pad and in at 17:15 of the second. It was his first of the season and second career goal in his eighth game.</p> <p>Oliver Ekman-Larsson went off for tripping 1:52 into the third and Landeskog scored six seconds later to give the Avalanche a 3-1 lead.
It was his fourth of the season and 202nd of his career, tying him with Peter Forsberg for third most by a Colorado player.</p> <p>Donskoi made it a three-goal advantage when he got a pass from Valeri Nichushkin in the slot and wristed a shot by Raanta at 12 minutes. It was his sixth of the season.</p> <p>Jost got his first just 1:57 later, Lyubushkin answered with his first of the season and Bellemare added an empty-net goal to seal it.</p> <p>–Field Level Media</p></div>
