The Scoring Machine Known As Nathan MacKinnon

from Sean Keeler of the Denver Post,

“I don’t think I’m gonna get 50,” MacKinnon, the Avalanche all-star, said quietly when the subject of the big 5-0 — Nimble Nate is on a pace for 51 — was broached.

“Nah. I don’t think I’m gonna get 50.

“I’m a disher. I’m a passer. I’ll get 70 assists but not 50 goals.”

Come again?

“I’m just joking,” MacKinnon continued, less than hour after scoring twice on the hapless Detroit Red Wings to help Colorado close the first half of the season with a 6-3 win. “I don’t know. We’ll see.

“I’ve got to get hot. I’ve only gotten 40 once, so I don’t know. I’m just trying to play my best every night, play at 100 percent and we’ll see what happens out there.”
