Nathan MacKinnon, Gabriel Landeskog and Mikko Rantanen each scored in the comeback victory

by Ron Knabenbauer @RonKnab / ColoradoAvalanche.com

In the Colorado Avalanche's matchup against the Boston Bruins, it was likely going to take more than each team's top line producing for either club to pick up the win. But it didn't hurt the Avs' cause that their top trio led the way in the comeback victory.

Colorado's No. 1 unit had three goals and six points in a 6-3 win versus Boston on Wednesday at Pepsi Center after Nathan MacKinnon, Gabriel Landeskog and Mikko Rantanen each scored in the contest.

Morning Skate Report: NHL's Best Lines Face Off

Nathan MacKinnon, Gabriel Landeskog and Mikko Rantanen lead the Avalanche against the Bruins

by Ron Knabenbauer @RonKnab / ColoradoAvalanche.com

It is like a matchup of two heavyweight fighters, but in this instance it will be the Colorado Avalanche and Boston Bruins' best lines squaring off.

It is hard to argue the best trios in the NHL in the first six weeks of the season aren't Colorado's top unit of Nathan MacKinnon, Gabriel Landeskog and Mikko Rantanen and Boston's No. 1 group of Patrice Bergeron, Brad Marchand and David Pastrnak. The threesomes are among the league leaders in scoring and will see plenty of each other tonight in a cross-conference showdown at Pepsi Center.

"It's always a challenge, I like challenges," MacKinnon said. "Whenever a top line comes to town and the top players in the NHL, it's always fun. It's our responsibility to play against those guys, and it's going to be a tough one tonight."
