The aggressiveness from Sakic has made one thing very clear: the window to bring a Stanley Cup back to Colorado starts now.
The Avalanche needed overtime but won to send the series back to San Jose for Wednesday night’s decisive Game 7.
Nathan MacKinnon joined the elite company of Joe Sakic and Peter Forsberg in Thursday night's Game 4 victory.
Colorado came out strong and never let up on Thursday night, shutting out the Sharks 3-0 to tie the series up at 2-2.
The Avs showed that they're not a flashy offensive unit - they're a scrappy group that's willing to do whatever it takes to win.
After a dreadful stretch through December and January, the chance of the Avs making the playoffs seemed like a fantasy. Let alone actually making some noise and eliminating the top seed in a relatively dominant fashion.
Trailing 2-0 with 7 minutes to go, the Avalanche rallied to win in OT thanks to two goals from Mikko Rantanen.
It was a complete effort in Monday night's victory over Calgary.
Stars shine. That's what they do. And in Denver, no one shines brighter than Nathan MacKinnon.
