Good evening ladies and gentlemen. Your Colorado Avalanche take on the Jets of Winnipeg tonight in Manitoba. Gamer time is 7:00pm ET, 5:00pm in the mountains and will be broadcast on Altitude 2 with Moser’s radio call available as usual.
As the Avs continue to adjust to the loss of some and the addition of others we get a game against someone that has actually lost to Colorado in the past 3 months. Sven Andrighetto was expected to join the team today after getting permission from Uncle Sam to do so. Wild guess is that he starts out with Dutch.
Picks starts again in his home town, most people haven’t noticed but he’s been pretty stout lately giving up 9 goals in regulation in his past 5 games with a save percentage of .943 overall. Anyone complaining that he sucks down below I WILL FIGHT YOU!
Landy - Mack - Nieto
Andrighetto? - Dutch - Mikko
Grigo - Comphs - Comeau
Malkin/Colby - Carl - Rennie
Toots - Barrie
Barbs - EJ
Beauch - Patty
Scratched: Colby/Malkin, Beef (nacho)
Injured: Varly (hip surgery), Z (broken ankle)
Next game will be Saturday in Canada’s coldest streetcorner

We continue the “82 songs the Avs might have considered instead of Delirious” feature today with “Negasonic Teenage Warhead” by Monster Magnet. Enjoy.
