Stanley Cup Playoffs Preview: Avalanche vs. Wild
The Colorado Avalanche and Minnesota Wild each have a lot to prove in their first-round series.
Avs' Varlamov May Not Start Sunday
If the Ducks win Saturday night and the Blues lose Sunday afternoon, Varlamov may not start Sunday's regular-season finale, Adrian Dater of the Denver Post reports.Should those two outcomes occur, the Avs will be locked into a playoff spot and have nothing left to play for. In such a scenario, it would be quite wise to start either Reto Berra or Jean-Seabstien Giguere over Varlamov. If the Ducks win or the Blues lose, Varlamov will presumably get the nod, as reported earlier Saturday.
Avs' Varlamov Starting Sunday
Varlamov will start Sunday's regular-season finale against the Wild, NHL.com reports.No surprise here, as the workhorse goaltender caught some rest Friday night, while Reto Berra and J-S Giguere combined to allow four goals on 29 shots. The Avs are still playing for a Central Division title, tied with St. Louis at 111 points with a game remaining for each team.
Most surprising teams, players of the 2013-14 NHL season
The Colorado Avalanche are among the biggest surprises of the 2013-14 season after going from second-to-last to the third-best record in the league in one season.
Barrie lifts Avs past Canucks 4-2
VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) Tyson Barrie put the Colorado Avalanche ahead in the game - and the Central Division standings.
|Semyon Varlamov had a rather forgettable season in 2012-13, finishing 11-21-3 with a 3.02 GAA. Now, he wasn't completely to blame -- he was behind one of the worst defenses in the league. The Avs have upgraded a bit on the blue line, so he should put up somewhat better numbers as the team's starter this season. But buyer beware -- the team is still young and that will result in a lot of rubber headed Varlamov's direction. He'll make a decent second goalie, but don't rely on him as your top dog.
