Good evening ladies and gentlemen. Your Colorado Avalanche take on the Blackhawks of Chicago tonight at the Pepsi Center. Game time is 9pm ET/7pm local and can be seen on Altitude and NHL.tv. Moser’s radio call will be available as usual from the NHL app and Gamecenter.
Big Z is still in the doghouse so he won’t play. Again. Andrei Mironov will play his 2nd game of the year. He looked fine last weekend in San Antonio and they may as well see what they’ve got at this point in time. Chris Bigras will sit thinks to a bad error leading to the VGKs offside goal last night. Gabe Bourque got blown up by Brayden McNabb and is on IR now. Colin Wilson also moves to IR to make room for some callups. Last night Andrew Agozzino and Rocco Grimaldi were recalled from the Rampage following their game, Grimaldi will make his season debut tonight. Jonathan Bernier will start the tail end of this b2b. Alexander Kerfoot gave us a scare last night when he was also blown up by Brayden McNabb but he’s resilient and will be in the lineup. The forwards below are just a guess but the D/G are a safe bet.
Sven – Mack – Mikko
Landy – Dutch – Yak
Nieto – Big Carl – Comeau
Greer – Kerf – Rocco
Lindy – EJ
Nemeth – TB4
Barbs – Miro
Scratch: Big Z, Bigras, Agozzino
Injured: Jost (LBI), Compher (broken thumb), Wilson (hip), Bourque (UBI)

The Rampage play an hour earlier than the Avs tonight if you’re looking for something to kill time before the fun starts.
The Avs are off until Thursday when they meet the Hurricanes
