Good afternoon sports fans. Your Colorado Avalanche take on the Predators of Nashville in Game Two of their Stanley Cup playoff run. Game time is 3pm ET/1pm in the mountains and can be seen exclusively on NBC. Moser’s radio call will be available as usual from the NHL app and Gamecenter.
8 Avs players made they playoff debuts on Thursday so we now have a seasoned lineup going into game two. Jared Bednar doesn’t expect any lineup changes today but Colorado did call up Spencer Martin to be the practice/3rd goalie yesterday. There are now 29 players on the roster, 27 of them assumed to be healthy. The Rampage finish up their season and affiliation tonight so that number could increase.
Most of us were pleased with the way the Avs played in the first 40 minutes in game 1. The Preds were reluctant to play at the speed the Avs were dictating and were still in the game going into the 3rd thanks to Pekka Rinne and their experience level. A complete effort like that could see the series go to the Pepsi Can even up and wouldn’t that be a hoot.
