The struggles continue in even-strength situations for the Avalanche top line of Nathan MacKinnon, Gabe Landeskog and Mikko Rantanen. How can a trio this talented be so invisible and play so much in their zone? Credit Vegas’ top line, centered by Chandler Stephenson, for bottling up the Avs’ top unit and not giving them any open ice or extra time in 5-on-5. Avs coach Jared Bednar said in the St. Louis series he doesn’t think his top line needs to hide from any matchup. Time to scratch that theory. It won’t matter in Game 5 on home ice (Avs have final change), but through double-shifting MacKinnon-Landeskog-Rantanen, Bednar needs to keep them away from the Stephenson line when the series moves back to Vegas for Game 6.
