Though they iced 11 forwards and seven defenders in both games against the Kings, they’ll be back to a standard formation in tonight’s game against the Anaheim Ducks. Rookie Bowen Byram made his debut last night, notching one shot on goal and one minor penalty, but will rest tonight.
Anaheim come into tonight rested, but with just one win over their first four games. The Avalanche are going to be a real test.
