​This is unbelievable!

Many key players might be injured on the Colorado Avalanche’s roster, it did not show last night as they faced the Nashville Predators. Or the poor Nashville Predators, we should say… 

The Avalanche went nuts in the second period of the contest, scoring six goals in just eight minutes, and crushed the Preds 9-4 in the end. 

Joonas Donskoi scored his first career hat trick, Nathan MacKinnon had a goal and three assists before sitting out the third with an upper-body injury. Cale Makar and Ryan Graves each added a goal and two assists for the Avalanche. 

It was the sixth time the Avalanche scored at least nine goals — and their eight-minute outburst marked the fastest six goals in franchise history. The Quebec Nordiques scored six times in 8:06 during a game in 1992. The few seconds matter… 

In the NHL, this is the second fastest record since 2005-06. The Toronto Maple Leafs still hold top spot with six goals in seven minutes and 43 seconds against the Atlanta Thrashers back in 2011.
