NBCSN’s Hockey Happy Hour: Cale Makar’s memorable NHL debut
This week’s Hockey Happy Hour on NBCSN will feature four notable milestone and record performances.
Just two days after finishing his college season at UMass, Avalanche defenseman Cale Makar scored his first career NHL goal, on his first shot, in his debut in Game 3. In becoming the first defenseman to ever score a goal while making his NHL debut in the postseason, Makar factored in Colorado’s 6-2 victory and two-games-to-one series lead.
Gord Miller and Ray Ferraro called the game action from Pepsi Center in Denver, Colo.
