Avs overcome Crosby's natural hat trick, beat Penguins 6-3

DENVER (AP) - Sidney Crosby and Nathan MacKinnon put on a show that made Cole Harbour proud, and it was MacKinnon who walked away with bragging rights for the Nova Scotia town.

MacKinnon had a goal and three assists, including one on Gabe Landeskog's tiebreaking score midway through the third period, and the surging Colorado Avalanche overcame Crosby's natural hat trick to beat the Pittsburgh Penguins 6-3 on Wednesday night.

MacKinnon's team won the matchup of hometown stars, but Crosby nearly stole it with his 11th career hat trick.
