|Avalanche/Wild Game 5, 4/26/14|
I've been to all the Avs home playoff games so far and they've been incredible. Game 1 had the end of game drama (with the Avs avoiding a loss in the last seconds then winning in OT), Game 2 showed the amazing skills of Avs rookie Nate MacKinnon with some of the prettiest goals you'll ever see, Game 3 was a combination of games 1 and 2 (late game drama and Mackinnon stars again)
Watching Nate MacKinnon reminds me of the feelings I had as a Denver Broncos fan in 1983 during John Elway's rookie season. I could tell Elway had the tools to be a future Hall of Famer, and I looked forward to many fun seasons of watching the Broncos with Elway under center. MacKinnon's reign as one of the top players in the NHL has just started (he's only 18 years old!) Barring injury Nate will give Avalanche fans many years of thrills ahead, just has he has done in the playoffs so far.
