Good evening ladies and gentlemen! Your Colorado Avalanche face off against the Wilds of Minnesota tonight at the Pepsi Center.

No big news today although Patrick said 'shit' in the daily briefing and that was pretty fun. PA is still with the team but not in the lineup for reasons that have been beaten to death elsewhere. Same lines/pairs that were victorious in the Lone Star state will go nuts for the home crowd tonight.

BREAKING: Ok, there was some big news today! The Avs have signed Semyon Varlamov to a 5yr/$29.5M extension. Righteous bucks! Press release from the team.
