The Colorado Avalanche returns home from its season-long, five-game road trip today with a game against the Los Angeles Kings.
The outing opens the Avs longest homestand of the season, a five-game stay that will be broken up by the NHL All-Star Break and the Avalanche's bye week.
The matchup with the Kings is the first of six afternoon contests at Pepsi Center this campaign and the first of two straight as Colorado hosts the Nashville Predators at 1 p.m. on Monday.
Colorado did not have a morning skate today due to the day game contest, so the club's exact lineup versus the Kings won't be known until closer to game time.
Below is the Avalanche's projected lineup based on the forward combinations and defensive pairings from Colorado's practice on Friday. They are subject to change.
92 Gabriel Landeskog - 29 Nathan MacKinnon - 96 Mikko Rantanen
22 Colin Wilson - 34 Carl Soderberg - 37 J.T. Compher
11 Matt Calvert - 13 Alexander Kerfoot - 10 Sven Andrighetto
57 Gabriel Bourque - 15 Sheldon Dries - 83 Matt Nieto
49 Samuel Girard - 6 Erik Johnson
28 Ian Cole - 4 Tyson Barrie
16 Nikita Zadorov AND/OR 44 Mark Barberio AND/OR 12 Patrik Nemeth
1 Semyon Varlamov OR 31 Philipp Grubauer
