2 minute for boards, a major for cross-checking Timo's face and a game misconduct.

FINAL: The #Avs fall 7-0 to the Golden Knights. That was a brutal loss full of turnovers you can't make against an opportunistic team. Colorado has been outscored 15-0 (!!!) in its past three road games.

Jared Bednar elaborated on his decision to sit Tomas Tatar and Jonathan Drouin.

“I tried to assure them that it's more of an overall team view for me. I’m not super disappointed in their play. Both of those guys have been okay.”

@cmasisak22
#Avs coach Jared Bednar said Makar, Byram and Lehkonen were all maintenance days. He said he’s not concerned about Lehkonen missing the game in Vegas at that time.

@rboulding
Per NHLStats: With an assist on Mikko Rantanen's first-period marker, Cale Makar became the sixth defenseman this season to hit 10 points, joining Quinn Hughes, Adam Fox, Shea Theodore, Moritz Seider and Travis Sanheim.

Neither Cale Makar nor Ryan Johansen said anything inflammatory about the play that ended with him into the boards.

Makar said he thinks he’ll be fine, and he just got lucky.

Cale Makar keeps coming and going from the locker room. He's on the ice now, and has taken a few shifts in this period, but just something to keep an eye on.

Cale Makar is back on the ice playing. He came to the bench to start the third, went to the room, and now is back on the ice.

With his assist tonight, Cale Makar becomes the fastest defenseman in NHL history to 250 career points, doing so in 241 games. The previous mark was held by Hall-of-Famer Bobby Orr, who did so in 247 games. https://t.co/xANVHhIjRv

Lehkonen Ranks Amongst Team This Season:

1.67 xGF (1st)
7 High Danger Chances (1st)
11 Shots on Goal (2nd)
18:55 TOI/GP (3rd amongst forwards)

This guy is currently pointless, but if he keeps this volume up we’re looking at a BIG season from Lehkonen https://t.co/vsEJmI1I2f

Nate MacKinnon tied his career high with 14 shots on goal last night. An NHL player has had 14-plus SOGs a total of 24 times since 1959-60 (how long the NHL has tracked them).

There are two players who have done it twice:

MacKinnon and Alex Ovechkin
