Good evening ladies & gentlemen. Your Colorado Avalanche take on the wingy wheels of detroit tonight at the pizzapizzadome. Game time is 6pm ET/4pm in the mountains and can be seen on Altitude and NHLtv. Moser’s radio call will be available as usual from the NHL app and Gamecenter.
Andrei Mironov scored his first NHL last night and in true Avalanche development tradition he will be benched the following game. Chris Bigras slots in, perhaps with Tyson Barrie, perhaps with Mark Barberio, perhaps with Nikita Zadorov. Jon Bernier takes the back half of the b2b in net.
Landy – Mack – Mikko
Willie – Kerf – JTC
Nieto – Carl – Comeau
Sven – Toninato – Yak
Z – Barbs
Bigras – Barrie
Scratch: Bourque, Mironov
Injured: Lindholm (jaw), Nemeth (back), Kamenev (arm)
