The Blackhawks sit in a position they haven’t been in for over a decade, as the standings sit today. They are fighting for dead last place in the NHL. Worse than a team that has only existed for a season and a quarter. Worse than a team that had to trade away most of its […]

The Avalanche’s top line of center Nathan MacKinnon and wingers Mikko Rantanen and Gabe Landeskog enter Monday’s game against the New York Islanders with a combined 148 points, the most for an NHL line through 33 games since Mario Lemieux, Jaromir Jagr and Ron Francis amassed 203 for the Pittsburgh Penguins in 1995-96. In addition to Lemieux — who is considered one of the top-five players of all-time — Colorado’s dynamic trio also has ties to the “Great One,” Wayne Gretzky, and three-time Stanley Cup-winning captain Sidney Crosby of the Penguins. Rantanen leads the league with 56 points and MacKinnon is second with 52. They are the fifth set of teammates since 1981-82 to become the first NHL players to reach 50 points in a season, joining Crosby and Evgeni Malkin (2009-10), Lemieux and Jagr (1995-96), Gretzky and Glenn Anderson (1985-86) and Gretzky and Jari Kurri (1983-84). “It’s cool. It’s a cool accomplishment, for sure,” MacKinnon said of the exclusive 50-point club after Monday’s morning skate at the Pepsi Center. “And it’s not like we’re just hot. We’re just good players who have good chemistry and Gabe is helping us a ton, as well. We had a good season last year and I think we’re just getting better. Hopefully this is the tip of the iceberg. We’re definitely here to stay for a long time.” #Avs coach Jared Bednar after AM skate. NYI next up https://t.co/mBCe3nqz15 — Mike Chambers (@MikeChambers) December 17, 2018 [related_articles location=”right” show_article_date=”false” article_type=”automatic-primary-tag”] Said Rantanen, who will put his NHL-leading 14-game point streak on the line Monday: “It’s a hard thing to explain, how I feel about (the 50-point club). It’s still early, but what we’ve been able to do as a team, as a line, has been good. But there’s another 50 games left, I think. We just have to stay consistent.” Landeskog, who is tied for 13th in NHL scoring with 40 points, is tied with MacKinnon for fourth in goal-scoring (21) and tied for first in plus-minus rating at plus-21.

We are experiencing something truly special this season. Jack Eichel is likely the best athlete to grace the city of Buffalo since Dominik Hasek. If his scoring rate continues and the Sabres make the playoffs, he will win the Hart trophy IMO, considering the beautiful trend set with Taylor Hall’s deserved victory last season. That […]
