GDT: Avalanche at Panthers 1/24/2014, game 50

Doug Pensinger

Good evening ladies and genitalmen! Your Colorado Avalanche take on the Panthers of Florida tonight in the Bluehair State.

We have some weird lineup issues tonight which I will try to confuse even more here:

Johnny Malkin is still sick, sicker than Tuesday apparently because he isn't even with the team and therefore will not play tonight (or tomorrow even, we think)

Alex Tanguay will make his return to the lineup after missing 36 games with knee and hip ailments, he won't play tomorrow (or will he?)

Nate Guenin is healthy enough to be taken off Injured Reserve, but not healthy enough to play hockey 5 days after. Maybe tomorrow (maybe not)

J.S. Giguere has more back issues and might not be able to open and close the bench door tonight, so our beloved Finn Sami Aittokallio has been summoned from Cleveland just to hang out at the Clevelander Bar or maybe be doorboy (or maybe start tomorrow's game)

Tonight's lineup:

Forwards
Ryan O'Reilly -- Matt Duchene -- Jamie McGinn
Gabriel Landeskog -- Paul Stastny -- Alex Tanguay
Max Talbot -- Nathan MacKinnon -- PA Parenteau
Cody McLeod -- Marc-Andre Cliche -- Patrick Bordeleau

D
Jan Hejda -- Erik Johnson
Andre Benoit -- Nick Holden
Ryan Wilson -- Tyson Barrie

Guardiens

Semyon Varlamov
Jean-Sebastien Giguere

Sami Aittokallio

I hear Barkov isn't playing for the Panthers tonight but I don't know if that's good or bad.

Tonight's Trivia: In the classic 80's Noir TV series Miami Vice, Detective Sonny Crockett always drove a Ferrari. In the first 2 seasons it was actually a Corvette with body panels that were fabbed to look like a Daytona Spyder 365, what model did he drive in the later episodes?

First poster with the correct answer gets a bushel of Stone Crab claws and a cold 6-pack of Kalik Lager.
