Avalanche lines for tonight

Published

on

The Colorado Avalanche will go with the exact same lineup as Tuesday night. Coach Jared Bednar confirmed that this morning, so here is that lineup again:

Landeskog-MacKinnon-Rantanen

Saad-Kadri-Burakovsky

Nichushkin-Compher-Donskoi

Jost-Bellemare-Sherwood

D

Toews-Makar

Byram-Girard

The Masters

Graves-Johnson

Grubauer in net.

Devan Dubnyk will start in goal for the Sharks.

The Avs have yet to beat the same team twice in the season. Let’s see if they can get that done tonight. I think it’s going to be a tough game. The Sharks were embarrassed the last game, and no doubt have gotten a veritable whipping from coach Bob Boughner since then, and they’ll come out hard I think. Key for the Avs is to withstand that energy at the start and settle into a rhythm against them and wear them down.

Doobie is 0-2 with an .894 saves percentage so far, which only makes me more nervous about this game. He’s due for a good game.

Colleague Scott MacDonald has more on the injury situation with Matt Calvert here.

Calvert to LTIR, maybe come back for the playoff when cap doesnt count.
Use the cap for goalie or another depth forward.
