Thought I'd get this up in case any news from practice on PA, Stastny or anything else. Berra is supposed to be out of quarantine and will be with the team. Will we see our newly minted Avs Malone and Carey today or will the journey from Cleveland prove just too long?

If Staz is out again Im not sure about our chances of winning this game. Losing one of Staz/PAP is okay but having both out really diminishes our top 6 and our bottom 6.

Against the Hawks...this will be tough.

Remember that one time we dressed 17 skaters, lost EJ in the game and still beat the Blackhawks? For some reason this team plays better through adversity. Though obviously having as many weapons available is preferable. I'm more concerned with the quick turnaround on the rematch. It is incredible difficult to beat a team in that tight time frame much less a team as good as Chicago.

Whenever the Avs say someone is day to day it usually means they are out at least a week so I don't expect Stastny to play tomorrow.

Is it just me or has it been a while since MacK has engaged the warp engines? Seems like he's more looking to make the pass, or skate in a more controlled fashion into the offensive zone.

The advantage of having three goalies is that Avs can practice hard and still give Varlamov proper rest down the stretch. Giguere and Berra can act as shooter tutors.

He's also being covered better. Defenders are hanging further back, there's no opportunity to skate past some of them.

The Hawks have some injury issues of their own, and the Avs always seem to play really well against them. Should be another good game.

All great players find ways to get open. MAck will figure it out. I do agree that defenders are hanging backa bit more when hes out there. I also would like to see him carry the puck more on his line. Too often its either Landeskog or last night Mitchell.

One of our top 6 forwards to blow his knee apart on the first shift of the game. Calling it now, might as well.

He's busy learning how to be a robot and not flinch when getting elbowed to the face.

Roy said in his presser that he plans on dressing 3 goalies, 8 defenseman, and 9 forwards. Wonder who comes out from the forwards?

@RadioMoser: Coach Roy says Parenteau 2nd degree MCL Sprain, still out 4-6 weeks. Stastny won't play tomorrow but maybe Friday. Varly in next 3 gms.

Hawks reporting Raanta is their goalie tomorrow

This will be his first game in a long time. Hopefully he is rusty.

While we seem to have Crawford's number, Raanta is a significantly worse goalie.... and I have now ruined it.

While it sucks that Staz and PAP are out...we are still icing Landy, Duchene, ROR, and Mackinnon. All of those players are capable of taking over a game.

We can win this

What? That doesn't seem like a sound plan to me.
