Erik Johnson suffers lower-body injury, unlikely to return

It’s been a standout night so far for one Colorado Avalanche defenseman, which perhaps will reduce some of the sting from losing a key one to injury.

Tyson Barrie‘s the player having a great night, as he’s responsible for both Avs goals through two periods.

That’s the good news. The bad is that Erik Johnson may not return to Monday’s contest against the Los Angeles Kings with a lower-body injury.

Colorado is already in a tough spot in the Central, so losing its anchor on the blueline could really sting.
