Good afternoon sports fans. Your Colorado Avalanche take on the Wilds of Minnesota tonight in the Land O’ Lakes. Game time is 4pm ET/2pm 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.
Varly still has the sick but he did practice, slowly, with the guys yesterday. With any luck he can start tomorrow but don’t bet on it. Anton Lindholm is ready to come off IR but a corresponding move needs to be made beforehand, most likely sending the Hamburglar back to Belleville. Sven Andrighetto was the healthy forward scratch last game and that move pretty much killed the 4th line, he’s back in today. Chris Bigras had a nightmare performance vs the Stars so Miro takes his spot next to Tyson Barrie.
Landy – Mack – Mikko
Willie – Kerf – JTC
Nieto – Carl – Comeau
Andrighetto – Toninato – Yak
Z – Barbs
Miro – Barrie
Scratch: Bigras, Bourque, Varly (sick)
Injured: Lindholm (jaw), Nemeth (back), Kamenev (arm)

The Avs jet back to Denver after the game to take on the Flame tomorrow night.
