Good evening ladies and gentlemen. Your Colorado Avalanche take on the Bolts of Tampa Bay tonight on Florida’s other coast. Game time is 7:30pm ET/5:30pm 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.
Gabe Landeskog returns from his unnecessarily wrong 4-game suspension tonight and boy do the Avs need him. Rocco Grimaldi was brought up to give “a spark” but barely played and was demoted after the Sabres fiasco. Patrik Nemeth has been rebuilt and will return to the lineup paired with Tyson Barrie. The staff seems to have had enough of Nail Yakupov for the moment so he will be one of the healthy scratches and they’ll go with only 11 forwards.
Landy – Mack – Mikko
Jost – Kerf – JTC
Nieto – Carl – Comeau
Sven – Willie
Nemeth – Barrie
Lindy – Barbs
Scratch: Yakupov, Bourque, Duncan
Injured: Kamenev (arm)
