A day of travel was on the agenda for the Colorado Avalanche yesterday leading up to tonight’s rematch with the Toronto Maple Leafs. Therefore no new updates on the roster or forthcoming lineup yet. However some good news as they arrived for their flight which was passengers Matt Calvert, Gabe Landeskog and of course recently returned Mikko Rantanen all expected to play on the three game road trip.
