Good evening ladies and gentlemen. Your Colorado Avalanche take on the Canadiens of Montreal tonight at Centre Bell. Game time is 7:00pm ET, 5:00pm in the mountains and will be broadcast on Altitude and NHLdotTV with Moser’s radio call available as usual.
Captain Gabe is back after overcoming LBI and the flu. We missed him. Someone in the forward corps, probably either Cody or Bad Andy, will sit out to make room. Calvin Pickard makes his 2nd straight start after playing stopper to the 6-game losing streak in Boston. He was always going to play one of the MON/TOR games so I wouldn’t read a lot in to that. Yet. Jarome Iginla plays in his 1500th NHL game as the 4th line RW.
Rennie - Mack - Comeau
Mikko - Malkin - Duchene
Grigo - Big Carl - Landy
Bad Andy - Colby - Iggy
Z - Barrie
Toots - Weircioch
Beauch - Goldbeef
Scratched: Cody (nacho), Gelly (nacho), EJ (broken leg)
Next game is tomorrow night on the Planet Toronto.
