Good evening ladies and gentlemen! Your Colorado Avalanche take on the Devils of New Jersey 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.
Wow, the Avs are shakin' it now. Since the 2nd blowout in a row on Tuesday we've seen Brandon Gormley reassigned to San Antonio, Nikita Zadorov & Chris Bigras called up from same and Nate Guenin waived/cleared. They even considered calling up Mikko Rantanen who unfortunately is out with a hand injury. More moves are on the way with EJ skating at full speed this afternoon. NO JOB IS SAFE
Our two promising youngsters will be in the lineup tonight, Bigras making his NHL debut and Z making his return. Nate Guenin, although waived, is still on the roster but will enjoy the game with friends in the press box. Friends like the new guy Bodnarchuk, who's Colorado future has to be in serious doubt at this point, and Mikhail Grigorenko who takes a night off so Colgate alum Chris Wagner can get a start and evaluation from the staff. Calvin Pickard will be in net.
