All Things Avs:
Join me won’t you?
Avs just got late word of a scratch: Peter Mueller (torso). Not great. No, nobody says it’s anything otherwise. Mueller did skate this morning.

Colorado Avalanche goaltender Jean-Sebastien Giguere suffered a groin injury during Wednesday's 3-1 loss to the Vancouver Canucks.
Giguere suffered the injury during the first period, but told the Denver Post that he isn't too concerned.
"I'm not too worried about it," the 34-year-old Giguere told the newspaper. "I'm not sure what it is, but I honestly...
Good news everybody, Matt Duchene is back at Colorado Avalanche practice.
He's wearing an orange no-contact jersey, making him look like a traffic cone but Duchene is back, skating hard and looking like he is nearing return. Now that he is close to return, the question is where to put him in the lineup.
When he went down with a knee injury, he was playing on a line Paul...
As the NHL trade deadline looms, every player is undoubtedly aware of the February 27th date. For many players, they will call new cities home in two weeks' time, don a different jersey, have their paychecks signed by a different team and ultimately, try to help that team win. For every other player, they will likely have a slightly new-look team as their teammates...
Midway through the first period against the Vancouver Canucks, the Colorado Avalanche got some news that will not please them.
Jean-Sebastien Giguere, the player who has kept the Avs in the playoff race, left the game with a groin injury.
No word how serious it is but he is out for this game at the very least.
Down at Lake Erie, Cedrick Desjardins is currently injured as...

EDMONTON – Well, so much for Peter Mueller skating today, like I/we were led to believe. He is not out there right now as the Avs take part in their morning skate at Rexall Place. I’ll have an update afterward to try and find out more what’s going on. Everybody else on the roster is out there, including Mark Olver, freshly called up from Lake Erie.
Matt Duchene is skating again...
EDMONTON – Peter Mueller indeed won’t play tonight. Avs are adamant it’s a torso injury, not a concussion. I’m not disputing it. Of course, I’m unable to talk with Mueller himself, nor him to me, because it’s a strict team rule that injured players not speak to media.
Matt Duchene won’t play tonight, but his status has been upgraded to day-to-day. Sounds like there...
The Colorado Avalanche are very much in the mix for a playoff spot, but they may need to improve their play quickly to stay there.
Getting a better result against the last-place Edmonton Oilers would certainly help.
Colorado looks to avoid a third straight loss overall and fourth in five meetings with Edmonton this season when the teams meet at Rexall Place on Friday night.
Shootouts have been very kind to the Colorado Avalanche all season, except earlier this month when they hosted Vancouver.
The Canucks are getting plenty of practice in tiebreakers, but they hope they won't need one Wednesday night as they look to take at least one point from the Avalanche for the 15th consecutive meeting.
Colorado (28-25-4) had won all seven of its shootouts...
The Post's NHL reporter answers your questions in Adrian Dater's Avs Mailbag. In this installment, Adrian takes seven questions, including one wondering if the Avs are willing to part with defenders before the trade deadline.
The Vancouver Canucks will try to continue their recent dominance of Colorado when they welcome the Avalanche for tonight's Northwest Division clash at Rogers Arena.

VANCOUVER – Other than losing their starting goalie, finding out shortly before the game their top left winger wouldn’t play, losing another top winger with an injury and then losing a game on a bad bounce with a few minutes left, it was a fine night for the Burgundy and Blue.
Avs lose 3-1 to Vancouver, and now are without J.S. Giguere, TJ Galiardi...
