I pity the poor person who made tonight’s programming decision for NBCSN. Really. I know that these decisions were made at the start of the season, but this isn’t exactly the matchup that the programming executives envisioned.
Tonight’s feed is available on NBCSN and on the LiveExtra app if you don’t have a TV handy.
The Avalanche are the worst team in the league, the Blues are on a five game losing streak and are on the wrong side of the playoff window, and the Blues were bigger sellers at the trade deadline than the Avalanche were. Friday night’s 3-0 to the Winnipeg Jets was listless, flat, and disinterested despite a solid performance from Carter Hutton.
Tonight Mike Yeo has switched the lines around. Let’s see how this works.
Jaden Schwartz - Paul Stastny - Vladimir Tarasenko
Alexander Steen - Patrik Berglund - David Perron
Magnus Paajarvi - Jori Lehtera - Nail Yakupov
Scottie Upshall - Kyle Brodziak - Ryan Reaves
Jay Bouwmeester - Alex Pietrangelo
Joel Edmundson - Colton Parayko
Carl Gunnarsson - Jordan Schmaltz
