Coach's Corner: Nathan MacKinnon has arrived

Don Cherry talked about Nathan MacKinnon's playoff debut, the confusion over the hybrid icing rule, and how Martin St. Louis may be missing Steven Stamkos on Broadway.

Avalanche rookie turning heads in his 1st playoff appearance

Nathan MacKinnon is everything Don Cherry expected him to be, and then some.

The candid Coach’s Corner commentator used his Hockey Night in Canada segment on Sunday night to highlight the Avalanche rookie's smashing playoff debut in the first two games against the Wild.

Cherry also talked about the confusion still coming from the new icing rule, as well as that Martin St. Louis might be missing former teammate Steven Stamkos as the Rangers dropped Game 2 against the Flyers.Watch previous episodes of Coach's Corner here
