Projected Avs, Blues lines and D pairs for Game 2

Published

on

Jared Bednar does not tip his hand anymore with the lineups, but it sounds like it’ll be the same lineup for Game 2 tonight as it was in Game 1. The fact that Andrew Cogliano was one of the two players made available to the media after the morning strongly suggests he’ll be back in the lineup, at least.

Bednar said every player on the roster remains available for Game 2. He also said “I liked our lineup” in Game 1, and the way they played. So, I would definitely believe that the same lineup will be out there tonight.

These would be the lines, therefore:

Nichushkin-MacKinnon-Rantanen

Landeskog-Kadri-Lehkonen

Burakovsky-Compher-Kubel

Cogliano-Sturm-Helm

D

Girard-Manson

Byram-E. Johnson

Kuemper

NOTEBOOK: Bednar said one reason when he has kept Nicolas Aube-Kubel in the lineup is “he’s gotten more patient with the puck” and “making better decisions” with it. “He’s not afraid to go the hard areas too, net-front. Lot of growth in his game.” … Avs are -245 favorites to win tonight, at SuperBook Colorado. … Bednar said Nathan MacKinnon has shown “huge improvement” in his faceoffs in the playoffs so far. … Some lineup changes for the Blues, it looks like:

Why do they say the game starts at 7:30 when puck drop is 7:50?!? So annoying

Girard and Manson are keeping their goal scoring streak going with some great tips…into the wrong net
