Colorado Avalanche Gameday: Nichushkin Limping

Published

Colorado avalanche nichushkin

Game 6 for the Colorado Avalanche tonight, and maybe it’s time to worry a little about Valeri Nichushkin.

Hmmm. That’s not good. Don’t panic just yet though. Jared Bednar also described, to the media room, that it was a maintenance thing with Big Val. Same with other guys who weren’t out there this morning, guys like Nazem Kadri and Gabe Landeskog.

When exactly did Nichushkin get hurt in Game 5? Nobody seems too sure. It’s obviously to the lower body, whatever it is. Keep one thing in mind too: skating with an injury can be different than walking with an injury. Because, you’re gliding more, not putting as much bodyweight on it than you do when walking.

Superstreak Bonus!

The Colorado Avalanche are going to have a play perhaps a safer, more conservative game than they’d like. Especially if Nichushkin (or Andre Burakovsky) can’t play. We’re going to just have to wait until the lineup sheets come out. Burakovsky is on the trip and skated this morning, but Bednar wouldn’t say if he’s in or not.

Avs are -113 favorites to win at SuperBook Colorado. We’re pretty surprised by those odds actually. This is going to be a tough, tough game. But maybe this will be the night.

See you tonight.

What a revolting development this is.

— every single player keeps repeating the mantra of “we just need to play our game”

YIKES

Hopefully it’s just soreness/stiffness that goes away once he’s loose and warm.

He had to take a cart ride to the x-ray room after the last game so we already know it’s more serious than that. Something is broken or at least close to it which I’m guessing won’t go away. We will see if he can play through the pain or if it’s more serious and he’s out.

Clearly it wasn’t too bad.

He seems to be limping fairly comfortably though.
