Good evening ladies and gentlemen. Your Colorado Avalanche take on the Swords of Buffalo tonight at the Pepsi Center. Game time is 9pm ET/7pm 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.
Dominic Toninato was re-assigned to San Antonio yesterday and Rocco Grimaldi called up to provide a “spark”. He’ll be starting on the 4th so good luck with that. Colin Wilson gets back in the lineup after missing more time with hip problems. Nail Yakupov is listed on the Frat Line for now but as we saw a couple games ago he probably won’t be there long. Duncan Siemens gets a start, his 5th career in the NHL, with Patrik Nemeth close to coming off IR he could be back in San Antonio by the weekend. Varly gets to start this time as well as (hopefully) finish too.
