Colorado Avalanche fans were very excited, perhaps too excited, when Nathan MacKinnon scored four goals in Wednesday night's game against the Washington Capitals. Even women's underwear was thrown onto the ice.

The Nova Scotian completed his hat trick in the second period and the crowd at Denver's Ball Arena littered the rink with all sorts of headgear…and a pair of red panties. On the fourth goal of the third period, a pink bra was recovered by arena staff.

These findings made their way around the internet and raised some questions. Let's assume that at his current level of performance, MacKinnon creates a special effect on fans.

The center leads the National League with 82 points in 48 games.

In Colorado, the caps are typically donated to charities and 500 more are donated to them by the organization as well. We bet the underwear wasn't included.
