Good evening ladies and gentlemen. Your Colorado Avalanche take on the Capitals of Washington tonight at the center of power in the free world. Game time is 7pm ET, 5pm in the mountains and will be broadcast on Altitude and NHLdotTV with Moser’s radio call available as usual.
The Avs look to make it 3 out of 3 to begin the 2016-17 campaign against the President’s Trophy winners from last year. That said, this is the most scheduly of schedule losses - a b2b less than 24 hours after a tough win vs the Stanley Cup champs. SO WHAT, we got this.
The Avs lines & pairs went through a major frappe cycle last night so now we get Cody McLeod making his season debut and Ben Smith trying Verizon 4g LTE nachos. We do know that Varly will be back in net against the club that drafted him. The lines below are courtesy of Mike Chambers for what it’s worth, he didn’t bother with pairs so it is what it is.
Landy - Mack - Iggy
Rourque - Soderberg - Duchene
Gourque - Colby - Comeau
Cody - Grigo - Bad Andy
Z - EJ
Beauch - Barrie
Toots - Weircioch
Scratched: Gelinas (nacho), Smith (nacho), Mitchell (hip flexor)

We continue the “82 songs the Avs might have considered instead of Delirious” feature today with “21st Century Digital Boy” by Bad Religion. Enjoy.
