Good evening ladies and gentlemen. Your Colorado Avalanche take on the Duck of Anaheim tonight at the Pepsi Center. Game time is 9pm ET/7pm local and can be seen on Altitude and NHL.tv. Moser’s radio call will be available as usual from the NHL app and Gamecenter.
The Avs bring their 3-1 record to the rink tonight against perhaps their toughest opponent yet. Despite being down 2 of their best defensemen and playing Francois Beauchemin, the Duck have a 2-1-1 record so far. Plus these two teams really don’t get along at all.
Tyson Jost returned last game after injuring his knee but an MRI has given the training staff concern. He’ll be out for the next two games at least. Matt Nieto takes his place in the lineup and Colin Wilson will go back with Landy & Compher even tho’ that really didn’t work before. Mark Barberio stays in the lineup for a 2nd straight game. Jonathan Bernier will face his old team tonight while Varly gets psyched up to face Dallas tomorrow.
Sven – Mack – Mikko
Landy – Comphs – Wilson
Kerf – Dutch – Yak
Nieto – Big Carl – Comeau
Big Z – EJ
Nemeth – TB4
Big Russ – Barbs
Scratch: Lindy, Miro, Jost (knee)
