Sidney Crosby breaks Avalanche rookie Nathan MacKinnon’s ankles

Colorado Avalanche rookie and #1 overall pick from 2013 Nathan MacKinnon got his first crack at playing against Pittsburgh Penguins superstar Sidney Crosby on Monday night.  MacKinnon has played well as a rookie so far, but this certainly looked like his “welcome to the NHL” moment.  Crosby’s subtle stop and go absolutely shook MacKinnon, causing him to stumble and almost fall.
