Don’t forget to take your pregame nap for this one, as the puck drop may not happen until 8:40 or so tonight. It’s the Avs and Blues from Ball Arena, opening night of the Avs’ 56-game season. Here are the Avs lines, D pairs and starting goalie, and the expected taxi squad members:

Burakovsky-MacKinnon-Rantanen

Landeskog-Kadri-Saad

Nichushkin-Compher-Donskoi

Jost-Bellemare-Calvert

DEFENSE

Toews-Makar

Girard-Timmins

Bonus Voucher!

Graves-Cole

STARTING GOALIE

Grubauer

As of now, these are your taxi squad extras: 4- Byram (LD) 9- Gilbert (LD) 14- Bowers (C) 32- Miska (G) 44- Sherwood (LW) 61- Kaut (RW), Logan O’Connor

Keep in mind: Byram won’t come out of quarantine until Saturday. He’ll join the Avs on their West Coast road trip starting Monday.

There will be a moment of silence before the game to honor former longtime Avs GM Pierre Lacroix, who passes away last month. The Avs will also wear a decal this season with Lacroix’s initials.

AD – any thoughts on what the plan is for O’Conner?? I’m really surprised not to see him on the taxi squad
