Avalanche lines and D pairs against Wild tonight



Game number eight on the season for the Avs in just a few hours, at Ball Arena. Remember, starting November 1, you’ll have to bring proof of vaccination, or proof of a negative Covid test within the previous 72 hours, to step foot in the building. And, you’ll have to wear a mask, regardless. Here are the Avalanche lines and D pairs for the contest against the Wild, as confirmed by the team:

92 Gabriel Landeskog – 29 Nathan MacKinnon – 95 Andre Burakovsky
75 Sampo Ranta – 91 Nazem Kadri – 25 Logan O’Connor
17 Tyson Jost – 37 J.T. Compher – 61 Martin Kaut
43 Darren Helm – 12 Jayson Megna – 26 Jacob MacDonald


4 Bo Byram – 8 Cale Makar
49 Sam Girard – 6 Erik Johnson
3 Jack Johnson – 28 Ryan Murray


35 Darcy Kuemper
31 Jonas Johannsson

So, same forward group as the game the other night in St. Louis, but a different defense, with Sam Girard back in the lineup. Another start for Darcy Kuemper too. He’s started seven of the eight games so far.

According to Wild beat reporter Sarah McLellan of the Star-Tribune (one of the three U.S. reporters who went to the Edmonton bubble for the playoffs in 2020, with yours truly being another, and NO I’m never going to stop bragging about this), this is the Wild lineup for tonight:

Zero enforcement of masks after you enter the building .. Right or wrong,, that’s the way it is..

Tough to swig a beer, eat a hot dog and finish up an ice cream sundae with your mask on.
