Game 2 recap

Star Tribune’s three stars

1. Nathan MacKinnon, Avalanche: The 18-year-old followed a three-assist game Thursday with a goal and three assists in Game 2, along with four shots.

2. Paul Stastny, Avalanche: One game after scoring the tying goal and the overtime winner, the center had an empty-net goal and added three assists.

3. Gabriel Landeskog, Avalanche: The Colorado captain scored two goals on five shots.

Turning point

With the score tied 1-1 in the second period, Landeskog scored two goals 9:01 apart in a 10-point night by the Colorado top line.

By the numbers

2 Goals in two games for Charlie Coyle after he scored five in the Wild’s last 12 regular-season games.

33 Games since Marco Scandella had last scored, before his shorthanded goal with 79 seconds left. He last scored on Jan. 12, a 4-0 victory at Nashville.

6 Shorthanded goals in Wild postseason history, including four against Colorado (Wes Walz in 2003, Brian Rolston and Mikko Koivu in 2008).

5 Games decided by two or more goals of the 15 all-time playoff games between the Wild and Avalanche.
