David Aebischer will start in goal Friday against the Blue Jackets and then rest Sunday, reports the Denver Post.
The plan is for Tommy Salo to play against the Predators on Sunday. Adjust your roster accordingly.
If that game is the one that matters, the irony will be incredible.
I am rooting for you guys but I have to disagree here.
Goalies are the least Avs problem right now. They are not playing up to their potential offensievly and on D.
I agree goaltenders are the least of the Avs problems.. that's why I said if the team comes to play (unlike the past month or so), they should walk away with a victory. The Preds don't get any rest in between games so I'm hoping they're a bit tired when they roll into Avalanche territory..
Aebischer has been better than Salo. There's a chance the Avs could have the division title wrapped up by Sunday. I think the division title thing is a little overblown if it means the difference between 3rd and 4th place (of course Dallas is in that mix too, 4th or 5th). Let's hope that the Canucks beat San Jose (who have clinched their division) then lose to us and hope that somehow Colorado is still playing for something on Sunday, even if its just home ice and not the division title. I would think that if the game is important enough the Avs will go with their no.1, and Salo's not it.
