Foote, Lappy out, Raycroft in for tomorrow's game

More grim news for the Avs today guys...

The Avalanche will be without a pair of veterans when the club faces Nashville tomorrow, as defenseman Adam Foote and forward Ian Laperriere will not make the trip to Tennessee.

Foote suffered a tricep injury during Sunday’s loss to the Minnesota Wild. The blueliner played briefly in the second period before leaving the game. He did not take part in practice Monday and is out indefinitely.

The Avalanche also played the third period of last night’s game without the services of Laperriere. The winger, who has been playing center of late, skated for just 9:03 before leaving the contest with a back injury.

“Adam has a tricep injury and he’s going to be reevaluated in the next few days,” said Avalanche head coach Tony Granato. “Ian should be day-to-day. He’s got a stiff back but won’t make the trip.”

Ben Guite is expected to jump back into the lineup tomorrow and replace Laperriere after being a healthy scratch against the Wild, while Daniel Tjarnqvist will likely take Foote's spot on the blue line.

Oh, and this too:

Andrew Raycroft will get the starting nod in goal for the Avalanche.
