Puck drop in roughly 15 minutes.

Makar, Girard, Landeskog, Calvert and Jost are all reportedly set to re-enter the lineup. That's something like 27% of their lineup back in one game, as someone on Twitter posted. Calvert has missed time due to a concussion, Makar with an unspecified injury (most assuredly suffered in the last game against the Minnesota COVIDs when two of their shitbag players took a run at him in the corner), Jost and Girard due to COVID protocols (again, thanks Minnesota).

I sure hope this is fun--this will be the third outdoor game Colorado has taken part in, they've lost the previous two to Detroit and Los Angeles. They did win the Avalanche/Red Wings alumni scrimmage at Coors Field, so there's that.

I'll give the NHL credit--the setting looks positively idyllic. Kudos to them for finally appearing to do something really smart during this pandemic and put an outdoor game at a beautiful location they might otherwise not have been able to do with fans in attendance.

The ice is so fucked they had to stop the game after the first period. What a disaster for the NHL.

Luckily the world is such a disaster right now this feels like a small mistake compared to everything else.

Well it took something like 12 hours to complete but the Avs finally get a win at an outdoor game. Third time’s a charm I guess.

MacKinnon with a goal and at least one assist. Toews and Girard with the other goals, and the former’s ends up being the game-winner.

Overall a pretty solid effort by the good guys. Frankly if they can get everyone healthy this is possibly the best team in the league.

Those Nords jerseys are looking sweet. Might be the best 3rd jersey in the league. The Avs should keep those in the rotation.
