The Leafs’ best chance to score came in the second period when Mitch Marner had a breakaway.

He cut across and forced Vasilevskiy to stretch across the net to make a pad save.

“He made a really good play and I think I got lucky a little bit,” Vasilevskiy said of Marner’s chance.

Marner had a solid second, highlighting an issue the Leafs have had at points throughout the year: slow starts.

The Avalanche killed off three more penalties to run their streak to 36 straight before Wheeler ended it with a power-play goal 47 seconds into the third period.

All in all, a solid night.

MacKinnon scored his 17th goal of the season in the second period and set Cheap Blackhawks Jerseys up Cheap Authentic MLB Jerseys Rantanen’s tally 3:47 later to give Colorado a 2-0 lead. The speedy MacKinnon was in the top five in scoring on New Year’s Day — significant because the last Avs player to do that was Joe Sakic in 2003-04.

“We’re feeling good, feel like we’re playing good hockey,” MacKinnon said. “We’re not good enough to get comfortable — that’s for sure.”
