Gabriel Landeskog out for Game 7



EDMONTON, ALBERTA – The unrelentingly bad medical news just keeps coming for the Avalanche, as captain Gabe Landeskog will miss Game 7 against the Dallas Stars with a leg injury.

Landeskog suffered the injury in the second period of Game 6, when his right leg was sliced by an errant skate blade of teammate Cale Makar. It’s another big blow to an Avalanche team that can’t afford much more of this. As I type, guys such as Sheldon Dries and Mark Barberio are in the warmups for the Avs.

The Avs have lost seven regular players since the start of this series (Erik Johnson, Philipp Grubauer, Matt Calvert, Joonas Donskoi, Pavel Francouz, Conor Timmins and Landeskog).

Michael Hutchinson will start Game 7, and Hunter Miska is the backup.

Anton Khudobin will start in goal for Dallas.

After having a regular practice jersey on Thursday, Calvert again was deemed unfit to play. So was Timmins, who suffered a likely head injury in Game 6.

No time for the boys to feel sorry for themselves! Next man up and grind away.

It makes zero sense how one team could have so many injuries and other with none.
