Cale Makar scored a goal in Wednesday's 3-2 loss to the Seattle Kraken. Makar made a beautiful move at the blue-line to get around a defender and then finished off a nice passing play with Nazem Kadri to finally get the Avalanche on the board 17:37 into the first period. Artturi Lehkonen also added a marker in the game but the Avalanche could not find the equalizer when it was all said and done. Makar has 27 goals and 84 points in 73 games this season.
Edmonton Oilers DFS Spin
Connor McDavid picked up three points via a goal and two assists in Wednesday's 5-2 win over the Dallas Stars. McDavid got the assists in first, doling out helpers on goals by Evander Kane and Jesse Puljujarvi in the first and second periods, respectively. Had the night ended there, it would have been a decent fantasy showing for the star Edmonton forward. As is, McDavid had one more trick up his sleeve, scoring a goal on empty net in the closing moments of the contest. That helped give his evening just a little bit more shine. Over the course of 76 games played this season, McDavid has rocked 43 goals and 113 points. He has put in five points over his last three games.
