Colorado has received plenty of production from the top line of Nathan MacKinnon, Mikko Rantanen and Gabriel Landeskog this year.

MacKinnon leads the team with 40 points, while Rantanen sits second with 31 points and Landeskog has 26. They are the only double-digit goal scorers on the team right now and have worked well together. "The three of us are pretty young. We feel like we can all get better, and if we keep clicking on the production we've had, it's good enough," said MacKinnon. "Hopefully we can sustain this and even get better. Points can't be the indicator if we're getting better or not but we're feeling good, for sure."
