Colorado Avalanche

Pavel Francouz starts again, against Flyers. Setback for Grubauer?



Pavel Francouz

Just a brief notebook here:

Adam Werner was just recalled again from the Colorado Eagles, and he’ll serve as backup to Pavel Francouz tonight against the Philadelphia Flyers (7:30 start, because the game is on NBCSN – yes, Comcast/DISH subscribers, you can watch the game tonight).

I talked to Philipp Grubauer yesterday and he said he felt real good after practice, and he gave an emphatic “no” when I asked if he was worried about any recurring injury. Well, I guess the question now is: did he have a setback?

Guess we’ll know more later on that.

Francouz will try to atone for a shaky game against Calgary Monday. He will face a Flyers team that has some injury issues as well. They just lost leading scorer Travis Konecny to a concussion, and won’t have Oskar Lindblom tonight either. Lindblom has 11 goals in 30 games.

Nazem Kadri, as expected, returns to the lineup.

See you tonight.
