Above is the Avs’ lineup for tonight, courtesy of the Avs’ Twitter page.
No surprises, in other words, based on yesterday’s lines and D-pairs at practice.
Colin Wilson gets his first start of the year. It’ll be interesting to see how he plays, alongside Tyson Jost and Matt Nieto. Also will be interesting to see how the Donskoi-Kadri-Burakovsky line fares. I think it could be a real good one. Depending how they look tonight, it could make things interesting once J.T. Compher is able to come back from his lower-body injury. Right now, he’s still listed as day-to-day.
According to Boston Globe Bruins reporter Matt Porter, Jaroslav Halak will be in goal for the Bruins.
