Good evening ladies and gentlemen! Your Colorado Avalanche take on the Predators of Nashvegas tonight in the Country Music Capitol of the Civilized World.
Smooth Johnny Mitchell didn't travel with the team and is still day-to-day but the Barrie experiment has ended, he will return to the blueline where he belongs and Paul Carey gets another shot to impress the Avs brass. Scratches will be Guenin, Yogi and that other guy. Varly will be in net.
O'Reilly - Duchene - McGinn
Landeskog - Stastny - MacKinnon
McLeod - Cliche - Talbot
Carey - Malone - Bordeleau
Hejda - Johnson
Benoit - Sarich
Holden - Barrie (thank god)

MILE HIGH HOCKEY DRINKING GAME OF THE NIGHT: Take a big slug every time Mack and concussed Predators star Seth Jones are compared, because that never gets old.
