Avs lines, D pairs and goalie for Ducks tonight



ANAHEIM, Calif. – Here are your lines, D pairs and goaltender for tonight’s Avs game with the Anaheim Ducks. A 6 p.m. mountain start, don’t forget.

A win and the Avs get six out of eight points on this Southern California, and it’s a pretty good trip. A loss and it’s a split and that would be a disappointment. Big game from the Honda Center:








Superstreak Bonus!

OK, so Andre Burakovsky is back in the lineup. Good news there. I thought he would miss one more game, but glad to put the reverse DaterJinx on that.

Interesting that J.T. Compher moves up a spot, to the second line. Jared Bednar said he’s been working hard the last couple of games and warranted the promotion. He did not have good things to say about the recent play of the Nazem Kadri-led line, saying it hasn’t been “managing the puck” well enough of late.

Ryan Graves also gets a seat tonight, and Bednar flat out said he hasn’t like his game so much this year.

“Seen some good things from him, seen some poor things from him. Trying to hold him to the same standard. Haven’t seen the same Gravy through training camp and the start like we saw last year,” Bednar said.

Nice to see Burakovsky and Timmins back. Hmmm-it appears more likely to me that Byram will be with the AVs for the season. With the Pennsylvania teams looking for blueline help maybe a trade for one of the AVs is in the works?


Been thinking the same thing, but who goes and who do we get in return? Looks like the AVS are still in need of some secondary scoring

Bednar bomb to the line up, I hope a spark can be set into comphr, cause Kadri isn’t looking the same
