Avalanche lineup for tonight against Vegas

Published

Colorado Avalanche, Vegas Golden Knights

A new injury has popped up with the Avalanche. Matt Calvert is on the shelf again. Coach Jared Bednar said he’s been dealing with some “nagging little injuries” and will get the night off tonight against the Vegas Golden Knights. Doesn’t sound serious, but you never know. Here, then, is the Avalanche lineup for tonight:

Landeskog-MacKinnon-Rantanen

Saad-Kadri-Burakovsky

Nichushkin-Jost-Donskoi

Compher-Bellemare-O’Connor

D

Crystal Ball Bonus!

Toews-Makar

Girard-Graves

Byram-MacDonald

Grubauer in goal.

NOTEBOOK: Bo Byram is back in the lineup after missing one game with a lower-body injury. He will replace Dan Renouf in the lineup. … Hunter Miska stopped 20-of-22 shots to lead the Colorado Eagles to victory last night. … . Marc-Andre Fleury was first off the ice after the morning skate, and is the presumed starter for Vegas tonight. … Avs are -176 favorites to win outright tonight, on SuperBook Colorado. SuperBook also has boosted the payout odds from +298 to +350 if Nathan MacKinnon scores and the Avs win. A $10 winning bet would give you $45 (your 10 back, plus 35). Check it out here.

chippy play

-176? That seems crazy.

Optimists view on the Calvert situation: it means that we have 13 healthy-ish good forwards, so the team can let a player with minor nagging injuries rest.

Jared Moss

I’ll go the opposite than, thank goodness this is his last year on his 3mil…contract

Calvert brings a lot of energy to the team and has been a great asset, but ya I don’t see him being resigned with O’Connor waiting in the wings. Calvert’s contract is only 2.8m but that give Super Joe 2.1m back towards the cap next year and Joe’s going to need all his pennies

Calvert…good guy but gone after this season. Saad won’t be retained, JT/Donskoi/Graves/Johnson…one will be picked by Seattle in the expansion draft.

Bring up Bowers next season, re-sign the captain, Makar and Gru. Make it happen Joe!
