Good evening ladies and gentlemen! Your Colorado Avalanche take on the Flames of Calgary tonight at the Pepsi Center. Game time is 9:00pm in the ET, 7:00pm in the Mountain and can be seen on Altitude and GCL. Moser's radio call will be available from the Avs site as usual.
The Avs called up Ben Street from San Antonio to take Johnny Mitchell's spot while he rests his ailing oblique muscle. He'll be between Dennis Everberg, who he had some mighty nice chemistry with earlier in SA, and Jack Skille, who he won an NCAA Championship with 9 years ago. I like this line.
Z gets another game off but Brandon Gormley makes his return to the lineup, so we got that going for us. The Soderberg/Duchene two-headed monster approach continues after promising results on Sunday afternoon. Let's all root for Grigo to break the 10 minute barrier tonight, I know he can do it.
Landy - Soda ~ Dutch
Tangs - Mack - Iggy
Evs - Street - SkilSaw
Cody - Grigo - Como
Beauch - EJ
Holden - Barrie
Gormley - Stu
Scratched: Guenin, Z, Malkin (oblique, d2d)

If you dig the San Antonio Rampage like I do, jump over to their game for the 3rd period after the Avs finish up. Enjoy!
