Video: MacKinnon hits 20-goal mark with perfect wrist shot, Avs and Red Wings renew rivalry

There’s been no shortage of scoring in the first period of Saturday’s Stadium Series match-up between the Detroit Red Wings and Colorado Avalanche, as they renew what was once one of the fiercest rivalries in hockey.

Nathan MacKinnon hit the 20-goal mark for the second time in his career, as he ripped a perfect wrist shot off the rush that beat goalie Petr Mrazek, tying the game at one goal apiece early in the opening period.

Tomas Tatar opened the scoring just 5:07 into the first period, ecstatically raising his arms and looking to the sky in celebration as the Red Wings took the early lead before Colorado countered.
