Avs have been at 22 players and 6 defender for a while. Calling up a defender doesn't mean anything except them wanting to have seven defenders up here. And after watching some of them last night, who can blame them.

Watch Barrie get a healthy scratch next game.

I want Jones to be scratched in favor of Sgarbossa.

Gaunce yes....Elliott probably needs some AHL games cos he's just getting back from injury.

We badly need to wave one of the pylons or something to send a message in the locker room.

You know, we'll probably win this. Sacco's team just can't go on losing streaks, he's the coach that refuses to go away. They might win 1 in 3 or 4 but they won't lose 3 or 4 in a row. Stupid parity.

And yes I agree Sgarbossa needs to play this one, there was only one line producing offense last night (and Stastny's which produced but can't finish).

Gotta win this one for Varly (he's starting). Felt awful for him leaving the ice last night and slamming his stick. He deserves better.

Might not have to see O'Brien on the PP (or on the ice at all) if Elliott is the defenseman they're calling up.

Why was Sgarbossa scratched in the first place? Did he play badly in one of the game I missed?

Not really. Unless your name is Duchene, you can't play all the time unless you have a bad game. Sacco rewards the tank.

Not really, but they haven't found a proper spot for him yet (outside the second PP) and when they claimed Palushaj, they probably had to give him a proper shot.

When Landeskog comes back, Sgarbossa will probably go down to AHL.

Thank you! I would have surely missed this game if you hadn't said anything.

Avs twitter account says it is indeed Elliot recalled

Colorado Avalanche ‏@Avalanche

The @Avalanche has recalled Stefan Elliott from @monstershockey.

Pirate-Casper-Pajamas...The PCP line!
Not very gritty, but may get some possession and even some cycling done and would definitely be speedy.

It's true though. We are an AHL caliber team right now. Surprised we're still as competitive as we've been.

Preds 4
Avs 1

Goal scored after bouncing off of O'Byrne's ass, giving him not just a +1 but also an assist.
