Good afternoon sports fans. Your Colorado Avalanche take on the Senators of Ottawa today in beautiful Stockholm, Sweden. Game time is 1pm ET/11am in the mountains and can be seen on NHLN and Altitude (locally). Moser’s radio call will be available as usual from the NHL app and Gamecenter.
The Avs try to make it a 3-point performance in Sweden today, wrapping up the NHL Global Series in the Ericsson Globe. Nikita Zadorov’s performance apparently wasn’t up to par yesterday so he will sit and Andrei Mironov shall take his place. Tyson Jost is close to coming off IR but not close enough so he made the trip for nothing. AJ Greer is in the same spot, except he’s healthy and on the active roster. The only other change is Jonathan Bernier starting in net.
Landy – Mack – Mikko
Sven – Kerf – Yak
Nieto – JTC – Comeau
Bourque – Wilson – Rocco
Barbs – EJ
Girard – TB4
Bigras – Miro
Scratch: Greer, Zadorov, Soderberg (paternity)
Injured: Jost (LBI), Lindholm (jaw), Nemeth (back)

The Avs make the long journey home after the game for yet another 4 day layoff until they face the Caps on Thursday.
