BROSSARD, Quebec -- Thrust right into the action Thursday against the Ottawa Senators after being recalled from the American Hockey League, Calvin Pickard will make his first NHL start Saturday for the Colorado Avalanche.
Berra sustained a neck injury in a goalmouth collision with Senators center Kyle Turris at 2:46 of the first period. He is day-to-day and will not dress Saturday.
Pickard, who joined the Avalanche on Thursday, stopped 23 of 27 shots and was tagged with the loss in his first game in the League. He was called up from Lake Erie of the AHL after No. 1 goalie Semyon Varlamov was placed on injured reserve because of a groin injury.
