Good evening ladies and gentlemen. Your Colorado Avalanche take on the Stars of Dallas tonight in Big D. Game time is 8pm ET/6pm in the mountains and can be seen on Altitude and NHL.tv. Moser’s radio call will be available as usual from the NHL app and Gamecenter.
An extremely frightening moment last night for Nathan MacKinnon when he was high-sticked in the eye might turn out ok if he’s able to play tonight. In Jared Bednar’s post-game that was the plan and as of now seems to be happening. Tyson Jost is with the team but won’t play, he’s scheduled to practice Monday in Nashvegas. Varly aka the Stars Kryptonite will start of course.
Dallas has had a tough start (1-3) and only the hapless Coyotes keep them from holding down last in the conference. With a coach that’s incongruous with the roster it’s probably going to continue, at least it should tonight.
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)
If Mack actually can’t go then the Avs will roll with 7D. The Rampage are on the road in California so it’s not as easy as it looks to make a quick callup.

The Avs continue on to Nashville tonight for a Tuesday game at Bridgestone Arena
