Sorry for this being late (and brief). Until 5 minutes ago, I thought this game was tomorrow. Oof. So I'm cranking this out quickly on my lunch break. Too bad, as this is a big, big game for the Avs. The winner of tonight's match will be in first in the NW and, of course, if the Avs are for real this year, bouncing back from Saturday's disaster is going to be key.

[One, if they were so inclined, might go so far as to say this game was a "must-win" for the Avalanche.  -Joe]

Craig Anderson is the starter for the Avs. Chris Durno has been recalled (why?). T.J. Galiardi and John-Michael Liles are traveling with the club, but neither will play tonight.

The Flames? I don't like them. And...scene.
