IT’S STAR WARS NIGHT!!!

And I love the fanart the Avalanche social media account is putting out on Twitter so I’m just going to share it all here.

The Carolina Hurricanes had their own Star Wars Night a week ago, but with all the black and red branding, they looked more like Sith than a “Bunch of Jedi”.

Colorado Avalanche

The Avs won last night, 4-1 over the Chicago Blackhawks. Sam Girard got fined for a late hit on Alex DeBrincat in the game, but the Department of Player Safety didn’t give him a suspension of any kind. He’s good to go for tonight.

The Goalies

James Reimer (.924 sv%) is expected to get the start in net tonight for Carolina, with Petr Mrazek serving as backup after winning 6-3 the night before over the Winnipeg Jets. For the Avalanche, Pavel Francouz played last night, so Philipp Grubauer (.912 sv%) is getting the net at home.
