Athletistic / Hockey. The Colorado Avalanche sensationally lost to the Montreal Canadiens (1:2) in an NHL regular season home game. However, that didn’t stop Avalanche forward Nathan MacKinnon from catching Nikita Kucherov in the fight for the title of NHL’s top scorer of the season.

Last night, MacKinnon scored a goal. After the match against Montreal, the 28-year-old Canadian collected 123 (45+78) points thanks to the goal+pass system. MacKinnon once again tied Kucherov (Tampa Bay Lightning) in the league-wide scoring race. Third place here is occupied by Edmonton Oilers captain Connor McDavid (119).

The NHL regular season will end in mid-April. On average, teams have 11 games left to play. Nikita Kucherov became the championship’s top scorer in the 2018/2019 season.
