Good evening ladies and gentlemen. Your Colorado Avalanche take on the Kings of Los Angeles tonight at the Pepsi Center. Gamer time is 9:00pm ET, 7:00pm local and will be broadcast on Altitude with Moser’s radio call available as usual.
Nikita Zadorov fractured his ankle in the very last minute of practice yesterday giving Avs fans yet another kick in the groin this season. Get well, Z, and see ya in camp. Rennie Bourque skated with the team but apparently things didn’t go well and he’s not expected back for a while. In keeping with Avs tradition they will not call upon their farm system to provide any relief from injuries and/or player ineffectiveness at the NHL level. EJ should be back sooner than expected I guess. Picks is on a bit of a hot streak, he’ll need that tonight.
