Daily Cupcakes: January 4th, 2011

Today starts with an injury report, because it's been Darn hard to kep track of.

In a tradition which has continued for four years running, the Colorado Avalanche have once again been one of the NHL's most injury depleted through the first 40 games of the 2010-2011 NHL season.

Can the Avalanche *please* stop this trend?  Please? It's not something I enjoy. The Avalanche have gotten lucky that their call-ups have done well. Can you imagine if Shattenkirk couldn't handle the NHL level? Or if the lovely Greg Mauldin couldn't make those plays? I'm very thankful that they have been able to keep up, but it'd be nice to just be mid-pack with injuries!

It's Peter Budaj's turn.

A preview of the Buffalo - Colorado game

The Colorado Avalanche are one of the league's highest-scoring teams, but they haven't had much success finding the back of the net lately.

The Buffalo Sabres certainly have.

This seems to summarize the Avalanche woes nicely. Hopefully the Avalanche can find the back of the net more frequently against Buffalo.

Burried in a little corner on the Avalanche website was this nugget of information

Injured defenseman Kyle Cumiskey (concussion) took part in most of Monday’s practice, and while Avalanche head coach Joe Sacco said there is still no definitive timetable for his return, he did state that the blueliner will join the team for a full practice sometime later this week.
