Nathan MacKinnon was benched for part of the second period in Saturday's game.

"I wasn’t playing that good and just needed to sit down for a bit and regroup," said MacKinnon. He feels he bounced back in the second half of the contest. He also talked with Avalanche coach Jared Bednar prior to Sunday's practice so that they could clear the air. As long as MacKinnon getting benched doesn't become a regular occurrence, this isn't really that big of a deal.
