More than likely, MacKinnon's season is finished. Unless, of course, the Avalanche rally over...

Sean Bergenheim breaks Nathan MacKinnon’s nose

Nathan MacKinnon’s 2014-15 is the perfect example of a sophomore slump. In his second year in the NHL, MacKinnon is poised to fall well short of matching his offensive numbers from his rookie seasons. To make matters worse, MacKinnon was on the receiving end of a brutal check from Sean Bergenheim which left MacKinnon with a broken nose. There was no penalty on the play. As you...

Colorado Avalanche: Semyon Varlamov returns

One of the keys to success this season for the Colorado Avalanche was the continued phenomenal play of their MVP from a season ago, Semyon Varlamov.
