MUST SEE: MacKinnon's gorgeous goal

MacKinnon's gorgeous goal

Nathan MacKinnon carries the puck in, dances through the defense and dekes to tally on his backhand for an incredible goal in the 3rd period.

What they said after the game: 

"That's a really good team that comes at you with every line, every shift. There were portions of the game where they took it to us and then there were portions of the game where we took it to them. We answered back a little bit, pushed back and got a couple goals and made it interesting.- Avalanche coach Jared Bednar

"I didn't like the first period. We turned the puck over and gave up a lot of chances. Just not sharp, just blatant turnovers. The second period we played the way we're capable of playing. I didn't like our third at all. We gave up five 3-on-2s, a couple of other potential 3-on-2s, and that's not how you manage games." -Capitals coach Barry Trotz
