Good afternoon ladies and genitalmen! Your Colorado Avalanche take on the Sharks of San Jose today at the Pepsi Center.
Smooth Johnny Mitchell has recovered sufficiently from his recent flirtation with attempting to become a bowling ball to play hockey again. Erik Johnson (flu or something) and Big Meat McGinn (foot) didn't practice yesterday but are expected to be present and correct for the big game. Varly starts in net and one of Sarich/Guenin plus Carey, Yogi and that other guy will be hanging in the press box.
