DENVER (AP) -Detroit Red Wings defenseman Chris Chelios was a scratch from Game 4 at Colorado on Thursday night because of a lower body injury.

The ailing Colorado Avalanche were without center Peter Forsberg and forward Ryan Smyth.

Forsberg, who's dealing with a balky ankle and a strained groin, missed the first two games of the series before returning for Game 3, when he committed a costly penalty. Smyth missed Game 3 with a foot injury.

Colorado coach Joel Quenneville played seven defensemen and 11 forwards Thursday night instead of the usual 6-12 setup.

Also sidelined for the Avs are leading scorer Paul Stastny (knee) and forward Wojtek Wolski (shoulder).
