GDT: Avalanche vs Wild 10/8/15, Game 1

Good evening ladies and gentlemen! Your Colorado Avalanche take on the Wilds of Minnesota tonight at the Pepsi Center. Game time is 9:00pm in the ET, 7:00pm in the Mountain and can be seen only on NBCSN. Moser's radio call will be available from the Avs site as usual.

The Avs kick off the season against the very same opponent they faced first last season, this time hoping for a very different result. With a fair amount of roster turnover it's a definite possibility. No injuries of note to discuss, Jesse Winchester is not currently skating with the team but minor issues for Landeskog (shoulder), MacKinnon (hand?) and Johnson (groin) won't keep them from the lineup tonight.

Projectile lineup


Comeau - Dutch - Iggy
Landy - Mack - Tangs
Mikko - Sods - Borna
Cody - Malkin - SkilSaw


Beauch - EJ
Guenin - Barrie
Z - Holden



Scratched: Grigo, Gormley, Stu
Injured: Winchester (UBI)

Next up for the Avs is another home game, this time against the Dallas Stars on Saturday.

I know it's the first game thread of the year and we're all going to be a little rusty but I want to see everyone posting hard and going to the dirty areas. Ok? Team on 3, 1-2-3...
