Hello from the Pepsi Center, where the skidding Colorado Avalanche hope to start putting a real stop to that skid with a 7 p.m. tilt with the Dallas Stars.
Some lineup news about tonight: Philipp Grubauer starts in goal. The 28-year-old German is 2-5-1 in his last eight starts.
A lot of people seem to be either really worried about Grubauer or even wanting the Avs to go out and get some big-name, older goalie (Henrik Lundqvist, Carey Price, anyone?) but I can tell you that isn’t going to happen. The Avs are not going to take on a huge contract for an older goalie, period.
