Good evening ladies and gentlemen. Your Colorado Avalanche take on the Blue Jackets of Columbus tonight at the Pepsi Center. Game time is 9:00pm ET, 7:00pm local and will be broadcast on Altitude and NHLdotTV with Moser’s radio call available as usual.
Captain Gabe is still out, isn’t skating, now he’s on IR, this is a recording. Gabriel Bourque was recalled from the Rampage along with Sam Henley, who will make his NHL debut tonight. Coach Bednar wants them for a little energy and some PK prowess. Eric Gelinas was waived by the Avs today for “roster flexibility” reasons, meaning they’re calling up Cody Goloubef soon and we’re probably never going to see Gelly again. Cody McLeod and Joe Colborne are the healthy
passengers scratches tonight at forward.
