Avalanche to go back to Giguere again vs. Penguins
Colorado Avalanche coach Patrick Roy announced Sunday that veteran goaltender Jean-Sebastien Giguere will start Monday night's game against the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Colorado Avalanche coach Patrick Roy announced Sunday that veteran goaltender Jean-Sebastien Giguere will start Monday night's game against the Pittsburgh Penguins (7:30 p.m. ET, NBCSN, TSN2, RDS2) instead of Semyon Varlamov.

Varlamov won his first five decisions before a 4-2 loss to the Detroit Red Wings on Thursday, posting a 1.68 goals-against average and .950 save percentage. According to Denver Post beat writer Adrian Dater, Roy said he wants to give Varlamov some additional rest leading up to home games coming up against the Carolina Hurricanes and Winnipeg Jets.

Giguere has won both his starts, a shutout of the Boston Bruins in his season debut and a 4-2 win over the Buffalo Sabres in Colorado's most recent game Saturday.

Quote of the Day

I would definitely love to play with him. He's a skilled player and over the years he definitely has shown that he can score a lot of goals. I think it would work out well.
