The Avalanche host the Nashville Predators tonight. There's a few things you need to know about Nashville. The Predators are HOT; they've won 6 in a row and have 3 shutouts in the last 11 games. They can't score a lick (29th),  but their PP is smoking right now and they are pretty good at keeping other teams off the scoreboard. They have a guy named Jordin Tootoo who makes Daniel Briere look like Lady Bing. Jason Arnott seems to score 2 goals every single time we play them. And, Ben Guite is not currently with the club (he and his mustache are currently playing for their AHL affiliate). All that being said, there's always one key whenever the Predators and Avalanche meet up: make sure you do not record the Nashville feed. You've been warned.

For the Avs, Adam Foote should return after missing 3 games with a jaw injury. "It was nothing", Foote said. Albeit a nothing that kept him off the ice for a week, right? Scott Hannan may return after getting injured by the aforementioned Madam Bing. Oh, and some Craig Anderson fella will be in net. The Avalanche will be wearing their cursed 3rd jerseys tonight.

[UPDATE] It's been mentioned in the comment section that TJ Hensick has been placed on waivers. You knew that was coming at some point.

Meanwhile, in the Western Conference only 9 points separate 11 teams. The 3rd place Avalanche are just 5-points ahead of the 10th place Red Wings. That is freaking ridiculous. And it's WORSE in the East, where 13 teams are separated by 9 points. That's not parity, that's a clusterfuck.

Happy birthday to Johnny Hot Pocket; Liles turns 29 today.
