Other Penalties: MacKinnon and Archibald each received a game misconduct.
Archie sees Mackinnon laboring after the hit and sees an opportunity to win his first NHL fight. Weasel move backfires badly.
You tend to forget just how big and burly Nathan MacKinnon is. Dominates Archibald here as Arizona loves the trade off.
MacKinnon with the edge in this one!
MacK with the easy win. Props to Archie for standing up to a bigger stronger guy, but the fact that MacK was shaken up and hurting seconds prior lessens that a bit.
Apparently a MacKinnon with a bum shoulder beats the tar out of an Archibald 9 times out of 9.
Good for you McKinnon! Teach those lizard-eating punks in Arizona a lesson they will never forget. Go Avs!
While Rinaldo gets a BEAT Down by EJ .... the non fighting Nate takes out Josh. And oh by the way ..... the Avs smoked the Yotes after the fights. Welcome to being abysmal Yotes (like the Avs last year). PS .... 32 yo Soderberg went by fellow Swede OELarsson like an orange pylon in the 3rd period for a goal. Was OEL just lazy ....or already dreaming of a new team (like Duchene?).
MacKinnon handles Archibald with no issues to get the easy decision.
Some more Arizona goon hockey! The goon line was no the ice and got a total beat down! MacKinnon a goal score kicks the boy's butt!
Just iike the Arizona Coyotes are as a hockey team, their tv guys are just as bad...if not worse
Big Mac! <3
Easy win for Mac...
Zach was taking care. So yea kick the shit out of someone.
archibald got into his 1st nhl fight with angry mackinnon who wanted to go with someone mackinnon is bigger and he controlled the fight he didnt land anything so i dont see a reason to give him the win...4
Archibald jumps on MacKinnon's back...not sure why. In the end Archibald gets popped a couple of times...too bad MacKinnon didn't get to Rinaldo first. Rinaldo would have lost that fight too...but he probably would have ducked the 6 games he ate for the sucker punch.
