The Colorado Avalanche secured a dramatic 6-4 victory against the Seattle Kraken in a thrilling contest at the Climate Pledge Arena, taking a 2-1 lead in the series. The win was significant for the Avalanche as they made history by becoming the first team to clinch a playoff win at the Kraken's home turf.

Despite missing a key player in their lineup, the Avalanche displayed great resilience and determination in overcoming the Kraken's challenge. Notably, forward Valerie Nichushkin was absent from the Colorado team, and reports suggest that he left the team hotel in the middle of the night, accompanied by security, and he is now deemed missing by many.

Things floating around twitter re: Nichushkin

- Could be an indefinite leave but he could be back for Game 4
- Apparently left team hotel for the Airport with a security team
- No longer in Seattle
- Agent nor team will explain further


Very strange, hope everything is ok
