Next two Avalanche games against Dallas are postponed



Just as I finished writing a story saying, as of press time, the Avs-Stars game Wednesday was still on…it’s off. And, so is Friday’s game.

Eagles are on AHLTV Wed and Friday at 5MT. I’ve been catching their games during the shutdown and they are entertaining. Not the NHL but it is hockey and familiar faces

The Stars situation is worse than it appears on the surface. Not only are they dealing with the guys they’ve added to their Covid Protocol lists, their AHL team also has an even larger outbreak making it near impossible for them to even get minor league players called up to cover.
