Good evening ladies and gentlemen. Your Colorado Avalanche take on the Golden Knights of Vegas in Sin City. Game time is 10:00pm ET, 8:00pm in the mountains and, yes, can be seen on Altitude and NHL.tv. Moser will have the radio call as usual.
The Avs final exhibition will feature a reasonable facsimile of their opening night forwards along with some defensive pairings that feature a few of the last spot battles. Varly will start with Joe Cannata backing up.
Sven – Mack – Mikko
Landy – Compher – Wilson
Kerfoot – Dutch – Yak
Nieto – Jost – Comeau
Lindy – EJ
Bigras – Barrie
Big Z – Wars of Sky
Scratched: Soderberg, Bourque, Siemens, Mironov, Barberio
Injured: Bernier (groin), Greer (concussion), Colborne (Back), Boikov (shoulder)
Greer and Colborne skated in non-contact jerseys this morning. Boikov is out long-term. The word is that Bernier’s injury is minor and they are just being cautious. They better be.
