The Colorado Avalanche: News from around the NHL - October 10th, 2013

Brad Stuart has received a three game suspension.

Brad Stuart is headed back to the sideline after making his NHL season debut Tuesday night.

The San Jose Sharks defenceman was suspended three games after having a telephone hearing with the league’s department of player safety Wednesday following an elbowing incident with New York Rangers forward Rick Nash.

Stuart was penalized for elbowing at 2:32 of the first period after hitting Nash inside the Rangers blue-line. Video of the game shows Stuart did make contact with Nash’s head but it isn’t clear an elbow did the damage.

Good news for Parros!

Montreal Canadiens enforcer George Parros is “almost symptom free” following a scary incident last week that left the 33-year-old concussed on the ice. Canadiens general manager Marc Bergevin says Parros could return to action sooner than expected.

And a preview for the game against Boston tonight.

Under Patrick Roy, the Colorado Avalanche are off to their best start since moving to Denver.

Whether they can keep it going despite their top goaltender getting a night of rest remains to be seen.

Colorado visits the Boston Bruins on Thursday night seeking its sixth consecutive road win in the series.

The Avalanche are 3-0-0 for the first time in their 18-year history since moving from Quebec with Roy leading the way in his first season as coach. The franchise's best start was a 7-0-0 mark as the Nordiques in 1985-86.

"It's just more momentum on our side," Cory Sarich told the team's official website after scoring his first goal since Jan. 10, 2012, in the team's 2-1 win at Toronto on Tuesday. "We have to keep working on things, we have to stay grounded. We'll enjoy (the win) for a minute."
