The Colorado Avalanche have officially filed a review to the NHL in order to extend Nathan Mackinnon's point streak after a potential mistake by the league.

Nathan MacKinnon's remarkable home point streak met its conclusion last night as the Rangers edged past the Avalanche 3-2 in a shootout. However, controversy arose as the Avalanche questioned whether MacKinnon should have been awarded an assist on a pivotal play.

While MacKinnon's streak officially ends, his performance at home this season remains commendable. His 35-game streak ranks second all-time, trailing only Wayne Gretzky's 40-game streak.


Nevertheless, debates surrounding the disputed play persist. Former NHL goaltender Devan Dubnyk advocates for MacKinnon to receive an assist, highlighting the ongoing discussion within the hockey community.
