Varlamov missed Tuesday’s practice after he re-injured his groin in Saturday’s win over the Devils. He missed time last month with a groin injury and he is listed as day-to-day this time around. Calvin Pickard has been recalled from Lake Erie to back-up Reto Berra.
Varlamov gets the call in goal for the Avalanche on Thursday.
Varlamov allowed six goals on 46 shots in the Avs' loss to the Islanders on Tuesday. It was a rough outing for Varly but Patrick Roy will give him a chance to bounce back right away on Thursday vs. the Rangers. He has a 3.05 GAA and .918 SV% in 11 games this season.
Varlamov allowed five goals on 37 shots in the Colorado’s 5-2 loss to the Canucks last Tuesday. Varly was given Thursday off after starting the seven previous games and ended up sitting for two in a row because Reto Berra was rewarded an extra start after playing well vs. Toronto. Varlamov gets back between the pipes with a 2-4-4 record, 2.75 GAA and .925 SV%.
Varlamov makes his seventh straight start tonight.
Varlamov gave up three goals on 33 shots in the Avs' loss to the Ducks on Sunday. He will make his seventh straight start tonight having gone 2-1-3 with a 1.94 GAA and .943 SV% in six starts since returning from injury. He draws a tough matchup tonight vs. the 8-4-0 Canucks.
Varlamov stopped 27 of 29 shots in the Avs' shootout loss to the Blues last night. Head coach Patrick Roy was impressed enough by Varly last night to turn to him again tonight vs. Anaheim. Since returning from a three-game absence, Varlamov has won two of five with a 1.72 GAA and .949 SV%.
Varlamov turned aside all 40 shots that he faced in a 5-0 shutout win over the Islanders on Thursday. Since returning from a groin injury, Varly has won two of four with a 1.69 GAA and .953 SV%. He will look to pick up his first road win of the season tonight in St. Louis.
Varlamov stopped 49 of 51 shots in the Avalanche's 3-2 shootout loss to the Sharks on Tuesday. Despite averaging 33.8 saves and posting a .933 SV% in his last five starts Varlamov is 1-1-3 over that stretch. Besides a seven goal explosion vs. the Canucks, the Avs have not scored in front of Varly so far, but that could change tonight against an Isles team averaging 3.44 goals against per game.
Varlamov allowed two goals on 28 shots in a OT loss to the Jets on Sunday. Since returning from an upper-body injury, Varlamov has gone 1-0-1 while allowing five goals on 57 shots (.912 SV%). Despite an offensive explosion against the Canucks on Friday, the Avalanche are having a hard time scoring goals to start the year. They sit 26th in the NHL with 2.22 goals per game.
Varlamov allowed three goals on 29 shots in a win over the Canucks in his return to the crease on Friday. The W was his first of the season and their should be many more to come. The Avalanche finally found their offence, putting seven on the board on Friday and it should continue today in Winnipeg.
Varlamov missed three games with a groin injury, but he will be back between the pipes tonight against the Canucks. Varly has yet to record a win, while posting a 3.80 GAA and .910 SV% in his first three starts. Tonight he faces a Vancouver team coming off of a 4-1 win over the Blues last night.
The Avalanche have placed Varlamov (groin) on injured reserve.
Varlamov participated in the morning skate Thursday and was the scheduled starter. He likely injured his groin at the very end of practice, or tweaked after injuring it in Tuesday's 3-2 overtime loss at Toronto. The Avs said Varlamov (0-2-1) should be available Oct. 24 against Vancouver. As a result of the injury, Reto Berra will start tonight and Calvin Pickard has been recalled.
Varlamov (groin) has been downgraded to probable because he is game-time decision.
Varlamov was originally expected to start, but head coach Patrick Roy called him a game-time decision because he is battling a groin injury. If he is unable to go, Reto Berra will draw the start. Stay tuned.
Varlamov allowed two goals on 33 shots in a 3-0 loss to the Wild on Saturday. Overall he allowed seven goals on 71 shots (.901 SV%) in the home-and-home series while the Avalanche scored zero goals. On Tuesday, he takes on a Leafs team coming off of a big win over the Rangers on Sunday.
Varlamov will be back in between the pipes vs. Minnesota on Saturday.
Varlamov was yanked after 40 minutes after allowing five goals on 38 shots in Colorado's 5-0 loss to the Wild on Thursday. It was not entirely Varlamov's fault, the Avs simply were not ready for the Wild who came out flying. Minny set a franchise record with 48 shots on the night, don't expect that to happen again, look for Varly to bounce-back on home ice.
