Avs at Canucks: GWG Challenge and GDT, Game #49

Good evening ladies and gentlemen. Your Colorado Avalanche take on the Canucks of Vancouver tonight North of the border. Game time is 10pm ET/8pm 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.

Other than getting the flu crew back the only returnee from the injured list is Tyson Barrie for tonight’s game vs our old friends from the N-dub division. Mark Barberio goes on injured reserve to allow him back. He and Sven Andrighetto didn’t make the trip. Semyon Varlamov did make the trip and could start later in the week. Dominic Toninato and David Warsofsky were recalled after spending the All-Star break in San Antonio. Andrei Mironov was also called up for reasons unknown. None will dress tonight.
