He is one of the best players in the world, and he has just taken over this series. After scoring the dramatic game-winner in game two, he had a three-point night Monday.

The Big Guns
Leaders or passengers?
Johnny Gaudreau, Sean Monahan, and Mark Giordano shot blanks Monday night.
In fact, Gaudreau has only gotten one assist in three games.
Tell TJ Brodie what team he's playing for...again.
Cut down shots; 59 for Colorado. Are you kidding me?
Play a consistent more physical game for 60 minutes.
Use the advantage. The Av's secondary scoring was better on this night.
Taste of Calgary
Playing for the UMass Minutemen, Cole Makar of Calgary won the Hobey Baker Award, was named the conference Player of the Year and 1st team All-American. On Sunday morning he signed with the Avs. The next day he played his first game with them scoring his first goal.
