Avalanche facing adversity while Blues take ice for first time

One game into the season and the Colorado Avalanche are dealing with more issues than some teams go through in a month.

Nathan MacKinnon (COVID-19) is in limbo, forward Valeri Nichushkin is week-to-week with an upper-body injury and Colorado captain Gabriel Landeskog has been suspended for two games.

Colorado at least got a victory in its opener, 4-2, over Chicago, but it came at a price. Already the Avalanche are forced to do some shuffling heading into Saturday night's game in Denver against the St. Louis Blues.
