DENVER (AP) Nathan MacKinnon and the Colorado Avalanche leaned on their speed to get off to another flying start.This time Marc-Andre Fleury Jersey , it held up.MacKinnon scored twice, including one as part of a three-goal first period and another to chase Nashville goaltender Pekka Rinne from the game, and the Avalanche beat the Predators 5-3 in Game 3 on Monday night to pull to 2-1 in the first-round series.Blake Comeau and Gabriel Bourque also scored in a furious opening period that revved up a pom-pom waving capacity crowd. Gabriel Landeskog was credited with an empty-net goal for the Avalanche, who snapped a 12-game skid against the Predators.”Our guys were energized,” Avalanche coach Jared Bednar said. ”We were on our toes and the aggressors early in that game and it paid off for us.”Game 4 is Wednesday in Denver.For a third straight game in the series, Colorado scored first. But the Avs were able to make it stand in this one. MacKinnon and his teammates have been a different bunch at home this year. Their 28 home wins in the regular season was tied for the most in franchise history with the 2000-01 squad that hoisted the Stanley Cup.”They gained a lot of momentum, used their atmosphere to their advantage and we weren’t able to respond in that first period,” Predators forward Ryan Johansen said. ”That can’t happen.”MacKinnon’s goal at 4:25 of the second period gave Colorado a 4-0 lead and prompted the Predators to pull Rinne in favor of backup Juuse Saros . Rinne allowed four goals on 15 shots.”We weren’t very good in front of him Nate Schmidt Jersey ,” Predators coach Peter Laviolette said. ”I didn’t think we were giving him the support he needed.”Laviolette wasn’t in a mood to elaborate on what exactly went wrong.”It wasn’t good,” Laviolette said of the first period.Any particular reason?”We didn’t play very well,” he said.One thing was clear: MacKinnon was as fast as ever on home ice. He led the league in home scoring in the regular season with 67 points.”He thrives on the energy in the building,” Bednar said. ”He’s just so explosive at home. He’s dangerous every time he touches the puck at home.”Jonathan Bernier stopped 29 shots on a night when the Avalanche finished 0 for 5 on the power play. Johansen had a second-period goal and Colton Sissons scored another in the third to make it 4-2. Saros was pulled for an extra skater with around 2:20 left and, moments later, Landeskog was credited with a goal after being dragged down on a breakaway. A sliding Landeskog was trying to get the puck over to MacKinnon for the hat trick.It’s about the only thing that didn’t work out for Colorado.”We proved to ourselves that we can get a win,” MacKinnon said. ”Hopefully it just snowballs from here.”Nashville got on the board midway through the second after Colorado was whistled for two penalties on a play, giving the Predators a 5-on-3 advantage. Johansen knocked in a rebound to make it 4-1 http://www.goldenknightsshoponline.com/authentic-oscar-dansk-jersey , but Colorado quelled the other portion of the power play.Late in the second, P.K. Subban and MacKinnon got tangled up near the corner. It led to some pushing and shoving with both getting holding penalties.Simply playoff hockey.”Anytime you play the same team over and over and over again you start to really dislike each other,” said Austin Watson, who added a late goal. ”It’s good battles, good intensity out there and it’s fun hockey.”It didn’t take long for Colorado to get on the board with Comeau scoring 1:50 into the game and on the team’s second shot. The Avs beat Rinne on their opening shot in each of the first two games.Shortly after Bourque tipped in Patrik Nemeth’s shot, MacKinnon scored with 1:53 remaining in the first when he took a pass from Landeskog, used a burst of speed to get free and beat Rinne with a wrist shot.The last time the Avalanche played at the Pepsi Center it was also desperation time. They beat St. Louis in a winner-gets-into-the-playoffs season finale.NOTES: Nashville LW Viktor Arvidsson nearly had a goal in the first when he and the puck crashed into Bernier at the same time.

His slap shot from the top of the right faceoff circle went under Minnesota goalie Devan Dubnyk and trickled into the net with 7:42 left.“I saw the puck coming,” Dubnyk said. “I went straight down. I didn’t pull up. I didn’t open up. It’s a save you need to make. Obviously, you want to come up with that save in a 1-1 game.”Seguin added an empty-net goal, his team-high 20th of the season, with 24 seconds to play. The Stars won their third in a row and stopped the Wild’s three-game winning streak to pass Minnesota for third place in the Central Division.“That was a playoff game tonight,” Dallas coach Jim Montgomery said. “It was a big focal point going into the third: ‘Let’s win the net-front battle and be in third place.’ Our will was great.”Ben Bishop followed a shutout win on Wednesday with a 21-save effort against the Wild. He protected the lead by stopping a backhand attempt by Marcus Foligno with 6:25 remaining.Dubnyk finished with 29 saves.Wild coach Bruce Boudreau noted the narrow margin of victory.“One mistake here http://www.goldenknightsshoponline.com/authentic-reilly-smith-jersey ,” Boudreau said. “Zach (Parise) misses a net where Bishop falls and is out of the net and they come down and score, and that’s the difference in the game.”Bishop is part of a defense that has allowed only seven goals in the past five games. The Stars’ 129 goals allowed are second in the league behind the Islanders.“That’s what we are,” Montgomery said. “If you have the defense, you’re always going to be in every game.”Dallas’ Andrew Cogliano and Minnesota’s Brad Hunt scored in the second period, which ended 1-all.Cogliano tipped in Roman Polak’s shot from the right point for a 1-0 lead at 3:12 of the second.“It felt good just to contribute,” Cogliano said. “At this point, it doesn’t matter who scores, it’s all about the win.”That goal ended a drought of 74 minutes William Karlsson Jersey , 33 seconds without a score by either team in Dallas’ two most recent games. When Cogliano went off with a high-sticking double minor two minutes later, those were the first penalties by either team in 75:06 of ice time in the same games.Hunt tied the game at 8:48 of the second during the power play for Cogliano’s second penalty.NOTES: Cogliano’s fourth goal of the season was his first for the Stars in five games since being acquired from Anaheim in a trade on Jan. 14. … The Wild were playing for the first time in nine days. … Dallas C Jason Dickinson left Wednesday’s game with a lower-body injury and is expected to miss both games this weekend. … Minnesota LW Pontus Aberg (lower-body injury) left the game in the second period. … Wild C Matt Hendricks played in his 600th NHL game. … Entering the game, Minnesota led the Stars by one point in the standings, with the difference the Wild’s point for an overtime loss vs. Dallas.
