Devan Dubnyk, Avalanche look to keep rolling vs. Kings

The acquisition of goaltender Devan Dubnyk was supposed to provide an insurance policy for the red-hot, league-leading Colorado Avalanche.

With Philipp Grubauer sidelined for a couple of weeks after being put on the league's COVID-19 protocol list, Dubnyk will be relied upon heavily for an Avalanche team realistically with a Stanley Cup title in its sights, starting with Friday's home clash with the Los Angeles Kings in Denver.

Grubauer, who was tied for the NHL lead with 25 wins, five shutouts and 34 games played entering Thursday's action and is among the leaders in goals-against average and save percentage, must quarantine for 10 days and won't be able to resume team activities for at least two weeks. Therefore, Dubnyk, acquired from the San Jose Sharks last week, will step into the breach.
