Cale Makar found the back of the net in Colorado's 3-2 win over the Los Angeles Kings on Saturday. He tallied a goal, an assist, a plus-2 rating, four shots and one hit.
Makar's goal was a rocket one-timer from the point that made it through a bunch of bodies to tickle the twine. His assist on Devon Toews game-winner was even more impressive as the pass he made split three Kings defenders and sprung Toews in from the point for the 3-2 lead they would never relinquish. Makar is up to eight goals and 43 points this year.

Ranked first in Shots Allowed/Game. And ranked third in Penalty Kill %. Makar is up to three goals, 19 assists and a plus-12 rating to date.
