Matt Duchene has been skating and he's going to travel with the Avalanche during their road trip so he might be able to get into one of those game.
Curtis Sanford suffered a back injury during Thursday's game so he couldn't dress last night.
Jimmy Howard faced some shots and his return depends mostly on his pain threshold. The chance of re-injuring his finger are very slim. I heard whispers that he's hoping to return on Friday.
Marc-Andre Bergeron (back) couldn't go yesterday after taking warmups. It's been real frustrating owning this guy this season.
Jason Garrison left the game yesterday with a UBI. He won't play today.
Cal Clutterbuck left yesterday's game with a LBI. He'll be reevaluated today.
Kris Russell has the flu and was not able to play last night.
Returning to action: Jordan Staal, James Wisniewski
