Avalanche break open Game 1 vs. Coyotes with three goals in 83 seconds

The Avalanche are up 1-0 in their Stanley Cup playoff series vs. the Coyotes thanks to a sudden surge of offense.

Colorado scored three times in 83 seconds — with the first two goals coming 10 seconds apart — late in the third period to claim a 3-0 victory over Arizona on Wednesday in the Edmonton bubble.

Nazem Kadri (on a power play) and J.T. Compher connected at 13:05 and 13:15, respectively, and Mikko Rantanen put the bow on top with this tic-tac-toe gem at 14:28:

The 10-second gap between Kadri’s goal and Compher’s goal was the second-shortest in franchise playoff history, according to the NHL

. Adam Foote and Adam Deadmarsh scored seven seconds apart in Game 3 of the 1996 Western Conference finals. The Avs went on to win the Stanley Cup that year.
