Defenseman has upper-body injury, goalie also injured against Bruins @NHLdotcom

Cale Makar and Philipp Grubauer are day to day for the Colorado Avalanche and did not play in a 5-4 overtime loss against the Calgary Flames at Pepsi Center on Monday.

Makar left Colorado's 4-1 win at the Boston Bruins on Saturday 4:01 into the third period because of an upper-body injury. The 21-year-old defenseman leads NHL rookies with 28 points (eight goals, 20 assists) in 29 games.

Grubauer started against the Bruins but was replaced by Pavel Francouz after sustaining a lower-body injury at 17:25 of the first period. The 28-year-old goalie allowed one goal on four shots against the Bruins and is 10-5-2 with a 2.76 goals-against average and .914 save percentage in 18 games. Francouz allowed five goals on 33 shots Monday.

Goalie Adam Werner was recalled from Colorado of the American Hockey League to be the backup.

The Avalanche host the Philadelphia Flyers on Wednesday (9:30 p.m. ET; NBCSN).
