Avs lineup for Wild tonight

Published

on

Same lineup for the Avs tonight as on Monday night in Minnesota. Here it is:

Landeskog-MacKinnon-Rantanen

Saad-Kadri-Burakovsky

Nichushkin-Jost-Donskoi

Compher-Bellemare-O’Brien

D

The Masters

Toews-Girard

Graves-Makar

MacDonald-Burroughs

Grubauer in goal

NOTEBOOK: Still no Bo Byram in the lineup. He did skate again today, however, and it seems like a return should be soon. … Nick Bjugstad, who was pummeled by Kyle Burroughs in that fight the other night, will not play because of an upper-body injury. … Zach Parise and Mats Zuccarello will return to the Wild lineup after missing the last game. … Martin Kaut scored two goals last night for the Colorado Eagles in a 5-4 victory. I’m hearing that the recently-signed college guys could play this weekend. … I expect a rough game tonight. Avs need to be ready for that. … Avs can pretty much put the Wild away tonight with a win, at least as far as them being able to catch the Avs in the standings. A win would open a 10-point lead, and they don’t play each other anymore this season. … Avs are -185 favorites to win outright, at SuperBook Colorado.

Just keep the Wild away from our skilled players. They have been pretty chippy with Miko.

I expect a good physical game tonight. Mack seems like he’s on a mission and Makar has seemed better every game since he’s returned to the lineup. Probably the same goalie match up tonight as well, although Minny has a good 1B rookie goalie to play if needed.
