The Avalanche dusted off the Arizona Coyotes in their barn Friday night. Let’s take a look at the game individually:

Gabe Landeskog (A+) – Terrific game for the captain and birthday boy. He scored and added an assist and won eight of his 11 faceoffs. Part of a dominant performance by just about everybody tonight. Of his 14 goals this year, 11 have been on the road.

Nathan MacKinnon (A+) – Two assists tonight and fast all over the ice throughout. Terrific road trip for MacK.

Mikko Rantanen (A+) – Another goal and assist for the NHL’s scoring leader. The awareness he displayed on the goal he scored, on the touchdown pass from Landeskog, to stay onside, to shoot the puck on edge with accuracy – impressive stuff.
