Philipp Grubauer will be between the pipes tonight as the Colorado Avalanche closes out its season-long, five-game homestand against the Columbus Blue Jackets.
It is the second and final time the clubs will meet this season, and it is Columbus' only trip to Pepsi Center in 2018-19.
The Avs will likely use the same lines as they did in their last two practices on Sunday and Monday, which includes the trio of Gabriel Landeskog, Nathan MacKinnon and Mikko Rantanen back together.
Below is Colorado's projected forward combinations and defensive pairings. They are subject to change.
