The Colorado Avalanche enjoy another appearance on NBCSN after last week’s frustrating performance – that still had some flashes of brilliance – against the Chicago Blackhawks.
This time around, they’ll face the San Jose Sharks, a team that beat the Avalanche 3-2 in overtime on Saturday.
While the Avs are struggling merely to avoid being the worst team in the NHL, they do have some players to watch, at least if you’re a fan hoping to see your team add a piece at the trade deadline. (There’s no guarantee the Avs will move either one of Matt Duchene or Gabriel Landeskog in-season, but some fans will still daydream.)
Now, Duchene’s out sick tonight, but the Avs still have some interesting guys to follow. That includes goalie Spencer Martin, who’s set to play the first two games of his NHL career against the Sharks. Weird, right?
From San Jose’s perspective, they’re looking to win their fifth game in a row. And, perhaps, take a look at what Colorado has to offer in the rentals aisle?
Watch the game on NBCSN, online or via the NBC Sports App.
