Watch: Nathan MacKinnon turns on the jets for breakaway goal

Jeez, when Nathan MacKinnon is on, he is REALLY ON.

Check out MacKinnon as he blasts through three defenders to break in all alone on Anaheim netminder John Gibson. When he gets there he wastes no time and makes no mistake, burying a backhander for his 11th of the season.

But, as is usually the case with the Avalanche, the Ducks have the 2-1 lead late in the second at the Pepsi Center, thanks to Rickard Rakell's 17th of the season.

Colorado is currently 13-25-1, and they are the only team that has yet to hit the 30-point mark in the NHL.
