Colorado gets back on track, win­ning 3-1 at Toronto.

The Denver Post - - BRONCOS EXTRA - By Mike Cham­bers

toronto»The stick to his face, MacKin­non weaved through two de­fend­ers be­fore us­ing his ex­traor­di­nar­ily quick hands to beat Bibeau with a low wrist shot.

“If we don’t get that one, we’re look­ing at OT — or maybe they don’t get the 5-on-3,” MacKin­non said. “I don’t know how it would have played out, but it was nice to get that cush­ion. I knew where the puck was, and I knew I could beat Ko­marov be­cause he was flail­ing and maybe (de­fense­man Mor­gan) Ri­ley thought I was done play­ing and he wanted to poke check, get pos­ses­sion and get the whis­tle blown. I guess I took ad­van­tage of that, and the shot went in.”
