Good evening ladies and gentlemen! Your Colorado Avalanche take on the Maple Leafs of Toronto tonight at the Pepsi Center. Game time is 9:00pm in the ET, 7:00pm lima and can be seen on Altitude or GCL with Moser's radio call available from the Avs site.
- Brad Stuart is out for a number of weeks after doing something unfortunate to his hamstring. While this does give young Zach Redmond another shot in the lineup it's still a net minus for the team no matter how much you hate Stu's play so far with the Avs.
- Jesse Winchester's recovery from a pre-season concussion continues, now back in a full-contact jersey, but doesn't sound like his Avs debut is coming anytime soon. Word on Ryan Wilson's shoulder injury is that he's still a week or two away. Patrick Bordeleau skated a bit before practice but still is nowhere near any kind of return.
- The Avs declined to call anyone up from Lake Erie so far but Ben Street was waived today so that he may make his Monsters debut, hopefully on Friday, after missing the season to date with UBI.
- After diligently reading MHH as he always does, Coach Roy has decided to get in the zone. Interested in seeing what appears in the Avs defensive zone tonight. Hopefully a whole lot less shots on Reto Berra.
