MacKinnon, Avs win 8th straight by holding off Sharks 5-3

DENVER (AP) Nathan MacKinnon scored twice during a 58-second span in the first period, Matt Nieto added a late insurance goal and the Colorado Avalanche ran their winning streak to eight straight by holding off the San Jose Sharks 5-3 on Thursday night.

Carl Soderberg also scored, while Mikko Rantanen had a goal and two assists for the Avs, who've won eight in a row for the first time since the 2005-06 season. It's tied for the third-longest streak in franchise history.

Even more, Colorado has never trailed during the stretch and has outscored teams by a 34-13 margin.
