Avs, Lightning set for early-season marquee matchup

The Tampa Bay Lightning survived Boston's formidable top line in a 4-3 shootout win Thursday night. Now they'll face arguably a tougher one when the Colorado Avalanche visit Saturday night.

The Avalanche, fresh off a 5-4 overtime win at Florida on Friday night, start the second half of their six-game road trip against the Lightning at Amalie Arena. The biggest challenge for Tampa is stopping the combination of Nathan MacKinnon, Gabriel Landeskog and Mikko Rantanen.

There was some question as to whether MacKinnon would play Friday night after he sustained a leg injury on a check by Pittsburgh forward Patric Hornqvist in a 3-2 overtime loss to the Penguins on Wednesday night. MacKinnon didn't take part in Friday's morning skate, but he was in the lineup against the Panthers.
