Semyon Varlamov will miss tonights game after aggravating a groin injury in Saturdays 3-2 win over the New Jersey Devils. Varlamov, who missed three games earlier this season due to a groin issue, is day-to-day and as of now isnt expected to need time on injured reserve. Varlamov, a former Capitals netminder, played for the 10th time in Colorados past 13 games when he made 23 saves to beat the Devils. He is 4-5-4 on the season with a 2.95 goals against average and .918 save percentage on the campaign. Calvin Pickard was recalled from the minor leagues to back up Reto Berra, who is expected to face the Capitals for the first time in his career tonight. Erik Johnson and Matt Duchene scored third-period goals on Saturday to help Colorado split a four-game road trip by winning two straight for the first time all season. John Mitchell also scored. Were very happy with those last two wins and hopefully we can build on that for the next game at home against Washington, said Colorado head coach Patrick Roy. The Capitals themselves are trying to win a second straight contest as they picked up a 2-1 overtime victory against the Arizona Coyotes on Tuesday night. Eric Fehr netted the game-winner at the 3:16 mark of the extra time, putting home a rebound past netminder Mike Smith. Jay Beagle scored the other goal while Braden Holtby stopped 23 shots for the Capitals, who snapped a two-game slide. I think anytime you can grind out a win, its always a good thing, said Capitals head coach Barry Trotz. It was a big win on the road. We needed that. Washington had scored just once in its two previous losses and was outscored 9-2 in losing both of its matchups last season with Colorado. The Avs have won four straight overall in this series, including two in a row at home. Holtby has faced the Avalanche only once before and gave up four goals on 37 shots in a 4-1 defeat in Colorado on Nov. 10 of last year. Sie sind nicht berechtigt Links zu sehen.

Martin had 27 points with some key baskets down the stretch, Love had his usual double-double, and the Timberwolves snapped a three-game losing streak with a 112-106 victory Saturday night over the suddenly slipping Dallas Mavericks.

Denver practiced on the synthetic turf outdoor field at the New York Jets training facility. By the end of practice, the temperature dipped to 21 degrees. "It was great," Broncos coach John Fox said after practice. "Were pretty much weather-proof. We practice in this stuff all the time. Being in Denver, weve played in a few different elements. We practiced numerous times in single digit, played in single digit, played in wind. Weve practiced in snow many times. Were pretty much ready for anything." Fox has chosen not to use the indoor field at the Jets plush headquarters for practices this week, opting for the type of natural elementss that will greet his team at Met Life Stadium on Super Sunday.

Wednesday is typically when the focus toward the game increases, given the full-scale practices. "I wanted to see how well they would re-boot, get re-charged and practice what weve put in," Fox said. "They recalled it and it went very well. We had a very good practice." The Broncos had a sense of normalcy on a few levels. Peyton Manning, as usual, was in command and precise with his throws. He seemed unaffected by the elements. "Very sharp," Fox said. "What Ive noticed, he had to get used to weather over the past two years. I think hes done an unbelievable job, which I think people forget." ' ' '
