Colorado Avalanche Preseason Preview: One more showdown in Dallas

With the regular season breathing down our necks, the boys make one last stop in Dallas

NHL: Preseason-Dallas Stars at Colorado Avalanche Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

One more! Just one more preseason game until we get real hockey back. The Lineup that travelled to Dallas likely won't be as close to a regular season lineup as Friday's was. We may see coach Bednar mess with line combinations and things as we set our sights on the regular season.

The Lineup

Vladislav Kamenev, Dominic Toninato, Sheldon Dries, and training camp standout Logan O’Connor will all be battling for a spot in the forward lineup. On the other side of the ice, Mark Alt, Mark Barberio, Anton Lindholm and David Warsofsky are still battling for the final spot on defense.

Seeing as Philipp Grubauer played the entire game in Minnesota, expect Semyon Varlamov to go the distance in Dallas. Ben Bishop and Anton Khudobin will both rest tonight while Colton Point will man the net for the Stars.

The official roster has yet to be released, but stay tuned to our Twitter @MileHighHockey where we will tweet out a lineup card as soon as the Avs figure out who they want to play.

Forwards (13)

Matt Calvert, Alex Kerfoot, Sheldon Dries, Tyson Jost, Colin Wilson, Logan O’Connor, Nathan MacKinnon, Carl Soderberg, Dominic Toninato, Gabriel Bourque, Matt Nieto, Gabriel Landeskog, Mikko Rantanen

Defensemen (7)

Will we get to watch this game?

No.

Somehow, in 2018, the Avs can only broadcast 2 preseason games. *Shrug*
