DENVER—Nathan MacKinnon doesn't have to dig too deep to find a reason why he scores so much.
“I shoot a lot of pucks,” the Colorado All-Star forward said.
Shoot, it's really not that easy.
MacKinnon scored twice to reach the 30-goal mark for a third straight season and the Avalanche beat the reeling Detroit Red Wings 6-3 yesterday.
ATLANTA—Norman Powell says nothing has changed, even though he's in the best streak of his highest-scoring season.
It may feel normal to the Toronto Raptors' sixth man. The results definitely look different.
Powell scored 27 points, including 17 in the final period, and the Raptors withstood Atlanta's late charge to beat the Hawks 122-117 yesterday.
KANSAS CITY, Mo.—With his best imitation of a tightrope walker, Patrick Mahomes high-wired the Kansas City Chiefs into their first Super Bowl since 1970.
MELBOURNE, Australia—Novak Djokovic did something he hadn't in 14 years: He dropped a set in a first-round match at the Australian Open.
That didn't bother him, though. He actually looked upon the challenge he faced Monday night under the closed roof at Rod Laver Arena as a good thing.
ADELAIDE, Australia—Tennis players competing in the Australian Open qualifying tournament finally got some relief yesterday from the tiny, noxious smoke particles that made many feel like their throats were on fire.
BOSTON—Alex Cora has already been identified as a ringleader in an illegal system of sign stealing when he was with the Houston Astros.
The Red Sox didn't wait to see what punishment Major League Baseball might give him for possibly bringing a similar scheme with him to Boston.
HOUSTON—The Houston Astros' sign-stealing scandal cost manager AJ Hinch and general manager Jeff Luhnow their jobs, and Boston Red Sox manager Alex Cora could be next.
MONTREAL—The Calgary Flames were determined to build on a very emotional game their last time out. Instead, they came out flat.
The Flames saw their five-game winning streak come to an end with a 2-0 loss to the Montreal Canadiens last night on Carey Price's 31-save shutout.
The defeat came two days after an intense 4-3 victory over the Edmonton Oilers.
TORONTO—Pascal Siakam was mid-sentence, speaking to the media in Toronto's post-game locker-room last night, when DeMar DeRozan rushed in and wrapped Siakam in a big bear hug.
