According to the Rocky Mountain News and Yahoo, Joe Sakic left Wednesday night's game with five minutes to go with a minor groin injury.
Certainly not good news to lose Sakic, especially now that there is no Forsberg or Tanguay to fill the void. However, in a more recent report, Sakic is expected to play tonight.
As reported on ColoradoAvalanche.com, TJ Hensick, the Avs top prospect has been recalled and is available for tonight's game.
Hensick was nominated for the Hobey Baker in college and one day, he will be a big time center for the Avs. Will he play tonight? It's very possible, especially since...

Richardson has been playing very well so this move puzzles me somewhat. If there is any good to come out of it, it will be in the fact that Hensick may have a chance to play.
Enjoy the game!
