Good evening ladies and gentlemen. Your Colorado Avalanche take on the Flyer of Philadelphia tonight by the Liberty Bell. Game time is 7pm ET/5pm 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.
The Avs get Big Z back in the lineup, finally, but have to go with 7D due to some flu issues. Matt Nieto is sick and Rocco too, the latter didn’t even travel with the team. Gabe Bourque returns after missing a few games with an undisclosed injury, he will take Nieto’s place on the Soderberg line. Taking him off IR puts the Avs at full 23-man roster strength so the next guy healthy means someone heads back to San Antonio.
Landy – Mack – Mikko
Sven – Dutch – Yak
Bourque – Big Carl – Comeau
Greer – Kerf
Barbs – EJ
Nemeth – TB4
Z – Lindy
Scratch: Bigras, Nieto (sick), Rocco (sick)
Injured: Jost (LBI), Compher (broken thumb), Wilson (hip)
