Makar Scores Twice As Avalanche Beat Stars 5-3 in Game 5 To Fight For Playoffs

Avalanche defenseman Cale Makar scored two goals as they beat top-seeded Dallas 5-3 in Game 5 on Wednesday night. 

The Avs snapped their three-game losing streak and extended the second-round Western Conference series.

“Obviously a do-or-die game from here on out in the series,” Makar said. “Each of us, we feed off each other. … And I felt like we were back to kind of like forcing their hand tonight.”

When Mittelstadt scored just 1:12 into the third period to make it 3-2, it was the first time Colorado had led in the series, aside from the opening game.

“It was great,” league MVP finalist Nathan MacKinnon said about playing with a lead. “They didn’t do that much, but anytime we can get a lead it’s important so we’re not chasing all series.”

Makar made it 4-2 with an unassisted goal just over three minutes later. His shot from the middle of the right circle went through the legs of goalie Jake Oettinger.

Avalanche goalie Alexandar Georgiev had 23 saves. Oettinger stopped 22 shots.

Joe Pavelski had his first goal of these playoffs for the Stars, and his second assist this postseason. 

Miro Heiskanen and rookie Logan Stankoven also scored for Dallas, and Jason Robertson had two assists.

Game 6 is Friday night in Colorado, where the Stars outscored the Avs 9-2 while winning Games 3 and 4. Dallas is 4-1 on the road this postseason — and 3-4 at home.

“I felt like once we were getting pucks, it was right on and off the stick, and trying to avoid a little bit of the pressure,” Makar said, when asked what changed in Game 5. 

“Having that different mentality, an attack mentality, and not trying to back down or trying to look for the perfect play.”
