Good evening ladies and gentlemen. Your Colorado Avalanche take on the Stars of Dallas tonight at the Pepsi Center. Game time is 8pm ET/6pm in the mountains and can be seen on Altitude and NHLtv. Moser’s radio call will be available as usual from the NHL app and Gamecenter.
Didn’t we just play these guys? Yeah, now you know how Rampage fans feel. The Avs make a few lineup changes that were really implemented at various points in Friday’s game vs Jersey. Compher is in Captain Gabe’s spot, Andrighetto had a strong enough showing to get a start on the Frat Line and Yakupov is back on the mismatched 4th. Jon Bernier gets a start though I’m not sure why. Yes, he shut them out last time but Varly has owned the Stars over his career and he’s the man. Duncan Siemens still waits patiently to dress for a game this season and with Patrik Nemeth skating it’s only a matter of time before he’s back in San Antonio.
