Good evening ladies and gentlemen! Yourtake on the ightning of Tampa tonight at the Pepsi Center. Game time is 9:00pm in the ET, 7:00pm in the Mountain and can be seen on NBCSN and GCL. Moser's radio call will be available from the Avs site as usual.
After Sunday's blowout, the Avs look to get back at it against their parallel "1st spot out of the playoffs" team in the East. Erik Johnson skated yesterday for the first time since injuring his knee, doesn't sound close to returning. Nick Holden hurt his ankle blocking a shot vs Chicago but will be in the lineup tonight. Smooth Johnny Mitchell left practice yesterday for unknown reasons but will play as far as we know. This game probably would have been a start for Calvin Pickard but with Varly getting an early shower the other night, he'll be back in net.
