The Colorado Avalanche defeated the Seattle Kraken 5-2 in Game 2 of their NHL playoff series, rebounding from a disappointing loss in Game 1. The Avalanche were led by Nathan MacKinnon, who had a goal and two assists, and Mikko Rantanen, who scored two goals. Philipp Grubauer made 27 saves in the win.

The game was tied 2-2 after the first period, with the Kraken scoring two power-play goals to overcome an early 2-0 deficit. However, the Avalanche took control in the second period, with Rantanen scoring two goals in less than two minutes to give his team a 4-2 lead. MacKinnon added an insurance goal in the third period to seal the victory.

The Avalanche outshot the Kraken 38-29 and won the majority of faceoffs, which helped them control possession and generate scoring chances. They also played a physical game, with defenseman Cale Makar delivering several big hits throughout the game.

Game 3 of the series will be played in Seattle on Monday.
