There's no fooling around with any of the Avs' usual day-to-day shenanigans this time: Darcy Tucker has been placed on the IR. The Avalanche say he'll be "sidelined approximately four weeks". See you in March, Darcy.
The Avalanche have recalled Kyle Cumiskey from Lake Erie. As Cumiskey is a defensemen (insert Joel Quenneville joke here), this must mean that either Wojtek Wolski or Joe Sakic will be ready to go on Wednesday, as the Avs have just 11 other forwards (insert second Joel Quenneville joke here).
