When the 2022-23 NHL schedule came out, many circled tonight’s game between the Florida Panthers and host Avalanche as a must-see TV.

Or, must-streamed, anyway.

Tonight’s game is only available on ESPN+ or Hulu.

Things have not gone to plan for either team as injuries, illness and overall average play have kept both teams far from the top.

At least Colorado has some fancy rings and a nice couple of banners to show from last season and can sustain itself off those for a bit.

And, despite all of Colorado’s injuries, it has been able to keep its head above water at 20-15-3.

The Avs, like the Panthers, do not hold a playoff spot — but are just two points out of the final wild card spot in the Western Conference coming into tonight’s game.

The Avalanche ended a five-game losing streak by beating Edmonton on Saturday night as it has used 38 different players this season (35 skaters) which is the highest in the league.

Going into Edmonton, the Avs had lost 219 man games to injury which was fourth in the league. Florida is currently at 122 games missed to injury — 41 belonging to Anthony Duclair.

The Panthers will change things up coming off of Sunday’s 5-1 loss in Dallas, putting Anton Lundell and Sam Reinhart up with Sasha Barkov on the top line; Sergei Bobrovsky will get the start.
