Nazem Kadri was key in the Avs 3-2 victory over the Arizona Coyotes. He finished the game with a goal, two assists, a plus-2 rating, four shots, one block and two hits.
Kadri produced at a solid clip in this one after showing up with a minus-5 rating in the previous. He buried the game winner by sneaking through the defense and potting it between the legs of Aaron Hill. Keep an eye on Kadri as him (and the Avs as a whole) haven't sunk into a rhythm yet and should yielding better results in the near future.
Nazem Kadri found the back of the net in Colorado's 6-2 loss to the Minnesota Wild on Wednesday. He tallied a goal, a minus-5 rating, two shots and two blocks.
In normal circumstances this would be a good thing but Kadri's minus-5 effort overshadows it. The game was close for the most part until a third period meltdown occurred and the Avs were bounced out of Ball Arena. Kadri has five goals and nine points on the season but is an atrocious minus-11. The next closest in the negative column is new-comer Bowen Byram at minus-4. Plus/minus isn't really a big deal in terms of performance but definitely isn't doing him any favors being in the double digits.
Nazem Kadri potted two goals (one on the powerplay) in Thursday's 3-0 win over the San Jose Sharks. He tallied two goals, an assist, a plus-2 rating, 10 shots and one block.
Kadri filled up the stat sheet for the fantasy managers that started him. If you track SOG then that will help out the week. His first goal he was in position to bash in some garbage while the Avs were swarming the net. His second came on the PP as Cale Makar let a point shot go and Kadri redirected it past Devin Dubnyk to seal the 3-0 win. He's up to three goals and six points so far.
Nazem Kadri had two goals in Colorado's series winning 7-1 victory over the Arizona Coyotes on Wednesday.
Kadri's first goal came on the power play as he is capitalizing on every opportunity he gets on the PP1 with Nathan Mackinnon and Gabriel Landeskog. Kadri is the first Avalanche player to score five man-advantage goals in a playoff year since Joe Sakic in 2001. A crisp tic, tac, toe and the puck was in on Kadri's first of the night from the aforementioned line. His second was came on a break away where he put a nifty move on Darcy Kuemper to open him up and slid it through the five hole. He's up to an impressive six goals and 11 points in the 2020 playoffs.
Nazem Kadri buried a pair of goals in Colorado's 7-1 drubbing of the Arizona Coyotes on Monday. He tallied a great line registering two goals, an assist, a plus-1 rating, three shots and one hit.
Kadri's goals both came on the powerplay so he didn't see his plus/minus go up and he was right where he needed for both of them. The first was a clapper taken from Mikko Rantanen that was turned aside but trickled out to Landeskog, then Kadri, and in. The second was pretty much all Nathan Mackinnon and Kadri came in to see the puck through the back of the net. He's been very effective for the Avalanche since being acquired from Toronto. He's scoring goals, winning face offs and adding to the grit they'll need to take on stiffer competition. He has four goals and nine points in the 2020 playoffs.
