The Colorado Avalanche went scorched earth on the Nashville Predators during the second period of Thursday's contest, striking for six goals in an eight minute span to turn a 3-2 deficit into an 8-3 lead.
Joonas Donskoi got the ball rolling at the 5:26 mark of the frame, and he punctuated the run with his seventh goal of the season at the 13:26 mark.
Avalanche forward Nathan MacKinnon, who collected his ninth goal of the season in the opening stanza, added three assists during the second-period rout.
In total, 12 Colorado players picked up at least one point over the eight-minute span. The club's offensive outburst occurred despite not having top talents Mikko Rantanen and Gabriel Landeskog in the lineup.
The Avalanche's wild run marked a franchise record for the fastest six goals in a game, according to NHL Public Relations.
