The Colorado Avalanche isn't expected to make any changes to its lineup for tonight's game versus the Nashville Predators. That means goaltender Semyon Varlamov will get the start for the second consecutive night after he made 44 saves in the Avs' 4-1 win on Thursday at the St. Louis Blues.

Varlamov has played in 15 straight outings, while goalies Jonathan Bernier and Andrew Hammond are both out with head injuries.

Spencer Martin will serve as the backup netminder for the sixth time this season.

Varlamov has been solid since Feb. 26, as he's gone 5-0-3 with a 2.07 goals-against average and .940 save percentage in seven games.

Defensemen Mark Alt and Anton Lindholm and forward Nail Yakupov will be Colorado's healthy scratches.

Below is Colorado's projected lineup. All line combinations and defensive pairings are subject to change.
