The NHL playoffs are currently witnessing a dizzying Finnish battle in the series between Colorado Avalanche and Dallas Stars.

Fortunately for Colorado - and the spectators - it continues as the Avalanche now narrowed the match wins to 2-3.

Mikko Rantanen and Miro Heiskanen both scored 1 + 1 and shared the second place in the playoffs with 18 points.

Now, after 14 matches, Heiskanen, who scored 4 + 14 = 18, is putting power on the defender at a tremendous pace.

In the previous game, Heiskanen already set a point record for the defenders of club history, and after Tuesday morning's match, the records are being put to the test again.

Heiskanen now increased his score to six matches, by which he ignores the club history record in the name of Sergei Zubov (2003) and Craig Hartsburg (1981).

With 14 points, the 21-year-old Finn, meanwhile, rose to share the NHL single-player record record with Paul Reinhart of Calgary, who did the trick in 1981.

The pace of Heiskanen and Rantanen is also very exceptional in Finnish terms.

Only Jari Kurri and Esa Tikkanen, who excelled in the wild years of Edmonton, and Ville Leino, a Philadelphia man of spring 2010, have scored more points in one of the playoffs.

As Rantanen's or Heiskanen's games will certainly continue in the final stage of the conference, at least Leino will probably be behind in the statistics this autumn.
