As reported before the game, Paul Stastny is injured and will not be back this season.

The Avalanche have lost a franchise record 434 man games to injuries and illnesses this season. Twenty-seven players have missed at least one game.

The Edmonton Journal thinks that the Avs should give up their 1st round draft pick this year and T.J. Galiardi for Bernier.

National Post talking about Andy.

Can you name Craig Anderson’s biggest save of the season?

Some interesting talk about the prospects expected to go first this year- Couturier is apparently slipping.

Edmonton is on the verge of finishing in 30th place, while the Colorado Avalanche has a grasp on 29th so long as it doesn’t earn too many points in five remaining games. The Senators, Panthers and Islanders are "battling" for 28th, which would significantly increase their odds of landing on the draft-day podium.
