Top-5: Two goals and 300th point for Jonathan Drouin
The Toronto Maple Leafs hosted the Colorado Avalanche on Saturday night, and the group guided by Sheldon Keefe saw their three-goal lead melt away like snow under the warm spring sun.

After successive goals from Domi, Rielly and Liljegren, the Avalanche responded with five unanswered goals, winning the game 5-3.

Among the Av‘s five goals, Jonathan Drouin scored his 10th of the campaign and added an assist, for a total of 24 points in 41 games this year.

His total of ten goals equals the sum of his last three seasons (in terms of goals) with the Montreal Canadiens, which is no mean feat. His current pace could allow him to break the 50-point mark, which would be a first since the 2018-19 season.

Incidentally, Drou has recorded a total of six points in his last five duels, and on top of that, he ranks third in the average time-on-ice column since January 1, 2024.

The trio he forms with his comrade Nathan MacKinnon and Mikko Rantanen is exploding all over the place, with a combined 21 points in the last five games. As the French cousins say, it’s ” barjo”!

Sheldon Keefe had just the right words to describe Drouin’s combination with the duo of Cale Makar and Devon Toews:

“When MacKinnon’s line gets together with Makar and Toews, it’s not the NHL. It’s another league.”

This quintet has helped the Avalanche collect eight wins in its last ten games and ride a three-game winning streak.

On the plus side, Jo Drouin is once again becoming an important member of a contending team.

In a gust

– The chemistry of the first trio is increasingly palpable!

– The coach is proud of his flock!

– The Habs’ ménage à trois continues: Jake Allen will be in front of the Habs’ cage on Monday, against the mighty Colorado Avalanche. I don’t get it…

– It’s true, it’s chilling!

– Now that’s fun in MT!
