Lines, notes and instructions for viewing
#Lines #notes #instructions #viewing Welcome to Alaska Green Light Blog, here is the new story we have for you today:
The Colorado Avalanche on Saturday will look like they regain some of the same magic they had at Rogers Place last June.
After losing their fifth straight game to the Canucks on Thursday and quickly falling down the standings, the Avalanche will look to reverse it against the NHL’s top player.
Connor McDavid leads the NHL by a wide margin with 75 points, and stopping him will be crucial if the Avalanche plan to get back into the winning column.
On Thursday, the Avalanche lost another forward through injury, Denis Malgin left the game with an upper-body injury. He didn’t skate in the morning on Saturday but it appears Evan Rodrigues will be ready to rejoin the lineup as he competed in the morning skate in a full contact jersey.
The Edmonton Oilers, meanwhile, hold the last playoff spot in the Western Conference with 44 points. They win a 4-2 win over the New York Islanders.
They have the top two scorers in the NHL in McDavid and his teammate Leon Draisaitl.
