Cale Makar wins overtime to give the Avalanche a 2-0 series lead over Nashville


The Avalanche was able to do it again.

Despite its dominating victory two nights earlier, Colorado needed 51 shots to win the series against Nashville Predators. The Avs won on their 51st and first shots at Ball Arena to defeat the Preds.

Even though it seemed impossible to get past Nashville’s goalie Connor Ingram, they kept going.

Jared Bednar, the coach, said that his team persevered, did the right thing, and was eventually rewarded.

Cale Makar scored 8:31 into overtime for the win of the Avalanche. They are one of only two teams that lead at least two games in the Stanley Cup playoffs.

While forward Logan O’Connor, a healthy scratch for Game 1, successfully fought Roman Josi to position the puck and screen the goalie, he shot it from the blueline. To win the game, the puck escaped Ingram’s five holes.

Makar stated that he tried to throw it low, but it was successful. “Overall, the guys made a great effort to get everything in the net.”

I’ve ever seen Makar put in one of the most impressive defenseman performances. He even broke an Avalanche record. Makar attempted 23 shots, with 11 of them being blocked. He had 12 shots on target during a playoff game, the highest number in franchise history.

After a goal by superstar center Nathan MacKinnon, Colorado took an early lead of 1-0. Ingram’s third goal of the series was his first before he faced the 49th.

One of eight shots for MacKinnon in an impressive performance to lead the charge.

Makar stated that MacKinnon is a competitor and loves to play. You can see his enthusiasm in morning skate even before the first game. He is a driving force in our team.

“He is a completely different animal in playoffs, which is why he might be the best player worldwide.”

Darcy Kuemper was only able to face 26 goals in goal for the Avalanche, but he had to be strong when Who called him upon. Although he celebrated his 32nd birthday with a win, he was also complimentary of his team’s play control for most of the evening.

Kuemper stated, “You just have to worry about what the next save is.” “I am confident that one will eventually go in for us. Focusing on the shots I get gives me more faith in the group.

For the next two games, the series will shift to Nashville. Game 3 puck drop is scheduled for 2:30 pm. Saturday

“It will be rowdy. Hostile. When Bednar was asked about his expectations for the Nashville crowd, he said it always is. They’ll get some energy from tonight’s performance, but we’ll need another strong game. We will need to transfer what we did at home onto the road.
