Fans rejoice in Nathan MacKinnon's four-goal night by throwing bras and thongs on the ice

Nathan MacKinnon's four-goal night was celebrated by NHL fans

Former player and NHL expert Paul Bissonnette was impressed by Nathan MacKinnon after his four-goal night against the Washington Capitals. He nicknamed him "THE DOGG" and backed him as the MVP.

The Colorado Avalanche striker made team history by scoring four goals for the second time this season, a rare accomplishment that left Bissonnette applauding the superstar's exceptional talent.

MacKinnon's natural hat trick against the Capitals matched a feat only paralleled by the legendary Joe Sakic in 2003. His performance also had fans celebrating in unique fashion.

Bissonnette humorously noted,

"Nathan MacKinnon has the ladies in the Mile High throwing bras & panties on the ice like he’s Drake for Christ sake. That’s the MVP."

Rewriting the history books, MacKinnon surpassed Sakic's record for consecutive home games with a point, having got on the board in all 24 home games this season.

The consistent excellence displayed by MacKinnon, coupled with the support of teammates Cale Makar and Mikko Rantanen, propelled the Avalanche to a commanding 6-2 victory over the Capitals.

NHL writers are now crowning MacKinnon as the frontrunner for the Hart Trophy.

Cale Makar scored an early goal unassisted. His skills shone as he maneuvered into open space and outsmarted Lindgren with a simple wrist shot, making it 1-0 for the Avalanche.

Nathan MacKinnon then took center stage in the second period, extending the lead to 2-0 with a powerful one-timer off a cross-ice pass from Rantanen during a power play. He didn't stop there, adding another one-timer at 7:00, this time from Makar's cross-ice feed, making it 3-0.

MacKinnon completed a remarkable natural hat trick at 9:16, cutting through the crease and beating Lindgren with a backhand shot, pushing the lead to 4-0.

Despite a response from Strome in the third period, Rantanen quickly restored the Avalanche's dominance, batting in a deflected pass to make it 5-1.

MacKinnon's fourth goal, a high-slot shot during a 4-on-4, solidified the 6-1 lead at 16:14. Strome managed a second goal for the Capitals during another 4-on-4 scenario, concluding the game at 6-2.
