Good evening ladies and gentlemen. Your Colorado Avalanche take on the Penguins of Pittsburgh 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.
The Avs are 1-0 against the reigning Cup champs and look to build on that. The Pens have been sneaky bad on the road this year, only a game over .500 while sporting a 22-3-3 record at home. Three game win streak, here we come! Tyson Barrie and Rennie Bork are still out. Matt Nieto is a game-time decision, if he can’t go then Colborne moves up to the 2nd line and Gelly dresses for the hell of it but probably won’t see much time. Spencer Martin was optioned back to San Antonio yesterday and replaced by Jeremy Smith, Picks will start of course.
Landy - Mack - Mikko
Grigo - Dutch - Nieto
Comeau - Malkin - Iggy
Bad Andy - Carl - Colby
Beauch - Big Z
Barberio - Goldbeef
Toots - Weircioch
Scratched: Gelly (nacho), Rennie (LBI), Barrie (LBI)
Injured: EJ (broken leg), Varly (hip surgery)
Next game will be Saturday at MSG
