    Believe Landy will be a gametime decision. If he's out, the lines will be something like:

    O'Reilly - Duchene - Downie
    Tanguay - Stastny - McLeod
    McGinn - MacKinnon - Parenteau
    Bordeleau - Mitchell - Cliche

    EJ - Hejda
    Barrie - Benoit
    Guenin - Sarich

    Varlamov
    Giguere

    Nashville lost yesterday. Seth Jones was a +2 though.

    They'll come in determined to not go 0-2, we should be more determined to go 2-0!

    I really hope Landy plays. He needs a bounce back. I really didn't like his game on Wednesday.

    Interesting to see how Elite defense, elite goaltending do vs (should be) elite offense.

    I think they will struggle containing our speed. They have a very positionally sound defence but I don't find them to be particularly mobile or agile other than Josi. Having Jones back there may change things.

    Really have a good feeling about this one.

    Feel like Mack and Duchene will be too much for NSH to handle.


    Going with a 4-1 W, goals from Duchene(2), Mack, and Ginner. Josi scores for the Preds.

    I think we lose 3-2.

    O'Reilly - Duchene - Downie
    Mitchel - Stastny - Tanguay
    McGinn - MacKinnon - Parenteau
    McLeod - Cliche - Bordeleau

    is what the Denverpost is saying will happen.

    It's so hard to predict what the score will be. As much as I would expect the scoring to continue, history has shown the Avs are just as likely to come out and lay an egg. Yeah, yeah, new coach. Until proven otherwise though, I will be cautiously optimistic. I hope Landeskog gets the clearance, and it's something like a strained muscle. No injured ligaments or damaged bones.
     
  8. Mitchell-Stastny-Tanguay should be the 3rd line to give McGinn-MacKinnon-Parenateau more ice time

    The Stastny line is going to be used as a shutdown line all season (could be considered the 3rd line in many ways), and MacKinnon's line will get minutes in between 2nd and 3rd liners all year (or until Stastny is gone).

    Look at the ice times from last game. Being designated as a "third line" doesn't mean a whole lot when compared to the second (besides matchups).

    MacKinnon, Parenteau, and McGinn all had more TOI than Stastny and Tanguay.

    It would be fantastic to steal another win here....excited to watch, GO AVS GO.



    Interested to see MacKinnon again, hopefully he keeps it up.

    Holding my breath over the Landeskog news. Hopefully it's nothing.

    What was there not to like about Landeskog's game Wednesday?

    He was used in a shutdown role, and that's exactly what he did.

    Me too, but having to reevalute today sounds to me like a MRI that needed the swelling to go down.

    That was a bit of an awkward looking hit.

    Not sure why. He made a couple bad turnovers which is to be expected in the beginning of the year against a good top line. Otherwise, he did make some nice rushes and played pretty sound for most of the game.

    Hope the news on him is good and he can play. Don't want the injury train rolling already

    Can't wait to see Mac vs. Jones! Seth looked very good (though some may disagree) in his debut, and Mac obviously did just fine for you all. Good luck, looking forward to this one. And to the Trotz vs. Roy WWE match to follow.

    I believe it will be Holden instead of Guinen.

    Wonder if MacK would take Landy's spot on the PP? Or McGinn?

    Roy said Guenin earned another game and didn't want to mess with the lineup

    Hoping Landeskog is ok.

    @bohlmeister: Roy mentioned that Guenin would be staying well because the team played well, and that he'd spoken to Holden about it already.

    Roy said yesterday that Guenin will remain in the line-up and he explained it to Holden.

    Screw you. :D

    Not sure if it's been mentioned but

    It looked fun

    Oh OK. I thought Guenin looked really solid in the first game.
