Good evening ladies and gentlemen! Your Colorado Avalanche take on the Ducks of Anaheim tonight in beautiful Southern California. Game time is 10:00pm in the ET, 8:00pm Mountain and there is sort of a clusterfuck as far as viewing goes. The much hated NHL Network will broadcast the game but it will be tape-delayed until the Hawks/Bloos finish up. This means that the game will be about an hour or so behind real life, thanks a lot! Complicating this is the fact that Moser will have the radio call from the Avs website as usual and it will be in real time.
Since the Avs have only 25 healthy players I assume everyone is on the trip. Also there don't seem to be any local media with the team (until Vegas of course) so we have no idea of who's playing or lines/pairs or anything. Here's the roster:
Comeau, Dutch, Evs, Grigo, Iggy, Landy, Mack, Cody, Smooth Johnny, Mikko, Borna, Soda, Tangs, Skille, Glencross
Barrie, Beauch, Gormo, Guns, Holden, EJ, Stu, Z
Injured: Winchester (concussion)

Just to prepare everyone, there will be spoilers in this thread. I'm not staying up til 2am to watch a tape-delayed game on an illegal feed so for me it's a Moser and twitter night. Enjoy!
The game will be picked up by the NHL Network as soon as the Blackhawks/Blues game is over. Should be approximately halfway through.
