Good evening ladies and gentlemen. Your Colorado Avalanche take on the Jets of Winnipeg tonight at the Pepsi Center. Game time is 9:00pm ET, 7:00pm lima and will be broadcast on Altitude and NHLdotTV with Moser’s radio call available as usual.
After an endless week off the Avs return to the ice against a team that’s given them more trouble than they’re worth in the recent past. Smooth Johnny Malkin makes his season debut after missing pre-season and the first 5 games of the year. Also in the lineup after missing oodles of time is 2015 1st round pick Mikko Rantanen, fresh from a conditioning stint in San Antonio where he put up a couple of assists in 4 games. Rene Bourque returns after missing time with a groin injury, Fedor Tyutin is still out with the same malady. Varly starts with Calvin getting tomorrow’s half of the b2b.
