Colorado Avalanche center Peter Mueller will not return to the ice for the opener of a home-and-home set against the Chicago Blackhawks on Thursday. Mueller is nursing a head injury which has sidelined him since a 3-2 victory over the Columbus Blue Jackets on Oct. 12. "Feeling great. Just, you know, getting everything back in the loop and waiting for my time to (get the) call," Mueller told the Denver Post. Mueller had played in the team's first three games after missing all of last season due to the aftereffects of a concussion. In the 2009-10 season, Mueller played 69 games for the Phoenix Coyotes and Avalanche, collecting 13 goals and 24 assists. Colorado (5-1-0) has won five straight since dropping its season opener against the Detroit Red Wings. The Blackhawks are 3-1-1 on the campaign.

Av’s Fall To Hawks

Saturday pregame Avalanche-Blackhawks

Adrian Dater CHICAGO – It’s pretty early here on a Saturday morning, and I’d like to still be sleeping probably, but am not. Partially, that’s because it’s too cold in the room. Why? Because of these stupid new thermometers in hotel rooms that are impossible to figure out. I turn it up to what says 75 degrees, and it blows hot air for a while, then it blows really cold...
