Hello Avalanche diehards, always a privilege to talk to you. Been doing it since 1995, don’t wanna stop now. Here is your Colorado Avalanche hockey club lineup against the Blues for tonight on this Saturday, the third of April in the Year of Our Lord 2021.
NOTEBOOK: Yes, Valeri Nichushkin is back in the lineup after missing one game because of an upper-body ailment. Kiefer Sherwood, who played last night, will be the guy No. 13 replaces. … It’s a good sign of confidence Jared Bednar is playing Liam O’Brien again tonight. He showed himself to be a pretty rough customer last night and adds some good sandpaper to the lineup. Don’t expect miracles from the dude, as he’s been a minor-leaguer most of his career. But maybe wearing an Avalanche sweater represents the kind of fresh start LOB needed. …As of the time I’m going to press on this, no word yet on who is playing goal for the Blues. … I expect a very tough effort from the Blues tonight. They fell OUT of the top four in the Honda West Division last night, with the Arizona Coyotes now in that spot. They will be a desperate team. … Avs will not practice tomorrow. Instead, they’ll board a plane for Minnesota. … Avs are -240 favorites to win outright at SuperBook Colorado. … There is also a strong odds boost offered by SuperBook Colorado. If Nathan MacKinnon scores a goal, the payout odds are +200, up from +128. That means, let’s say you bet $100 that he’ll score? If he does score, you’ll win $300 (your 100 back, plus 200).
