Nazem Kadri, Nathan MacKinnon carry Avalanche to rout of Red Wings at the Pepsi Center

Avalanche fans enjoyed their annual red-letter day at the Pepsi Center.

Big games from Nazem Kadri (two goals, three points), Cale Makar (two assists) and Andre Burakovsky (two assists) on Monday carried the Avalanche to a 6-3 victory over the Detroit Red Wings — its former Western Conference rival — in an MLK Day matinee at the Pepsi Center.

The Avs, who also got goals from Nathan MacKinnon, Matt Nieto and Ryan Graves and strong goaltending from Pavel Francouz, finished 3-0-2 in a five-game homestand that takes them into an 11-day break between games.
