Good evening ladies and gentlemen. Your Colorado Avalanche take on the Islanders of New York tonight at the Pepsi Cemter. Game time is 9:00pm ET, 7:00pm local and will be broadcast on Altitude with Moser’s radio call available as usual.
One last game before the Avs bye week and everyone gets traded. Noted turnover artist Francois Beauchemin is out sic and Eric Gelinas’ LBI issue has been resolved so they will swap. Varly is recovered enough to sit on the bench while Calvin gets his 7th start in a row. Jeremy Smith has been sent back to San Antonio. The Avs picked up forward Matt Nieto off waivers from the Sharks and he will make his debut on the 3rd with Carl & Iggy. Some of the usual line blendering as usual, hopefully it works. Looks like Grigo will be the healthy scratch along with a game-time decision between Cody and Martinsen, who I believe has been injured for the last few games.
Landy - Mack - Mikko
Rennie - Dutch - Comeau
Nieto - Big Carl - Iggy
Cody/Bad Andy - Malkin - Colby
Z - Barrie
Toots - Weircioch
Gelly - Goldbeef
Scratched: Bad Andy/Cody (nacho), Grigo (nacho)

Next game will be a while from now
