GDT: Avalanche vs Wild 4/17/2014, Game 1 2014 Stanley Cup Playoffs Round 1

Hannah Foslien

Good evening ladies and gentlemen! Your Colorado Avalanche take on the Wilds of Minnesota in Game One of the Stanley Cup Playoffs tonight!

On the injury front, Smooth Johnny Mitchell and his 18 games of playoff experience didn't skate today but Coach Roy still considers him day-to-day. Cory Sarich and his 57 NHL playoff games and Stanley Cup ring hasn't skated in a while so if and when his back gets better, he'll need some conditioning before cracking the lineup. Matt Duchene and his 6 games of playoff experience are still out with an MCL injury but the hope is he will be available in the coming weeks.

Semyon Varlamov starts his 20th Stanley Cup playoff game and first with the Avalanche. Watching from the pressbox will be Yogi, Stef and Wilson.

Projectile lineup:

ROR - Mack - PA
Landy - Stats - Big Meat
Cody - Cliche - Max
Carey - Malone - Bordy

Hejda - EJ
Guenin - Barrie
Benoit - Holden
