Avalanche focus on ice after Varlamov incident
Question of the Day
Backup Jean-Sebastien Giguere is prepared to fill in, should he be needed. He was initially slated to start against Montreal at home on Saturday, but that could change. He may just get the start Friday, too.
“That’s the job of a backup. You have to be ready for all kinds of scenarios,” Giguere said. “Sometimes, a goalie might get sick. Sometimes, he might get hurt in warm-up. Sometimes, he might be out for a month.
“You have to be ready physically and mentally for those kinds of challenges. I don’t know what’s going to happen coming up. … Whatever happened today, I’ll take care of it, try to face it, and move on to the next day and see what happens.”
Varlamov is off to a sizzling start this season, going 7-1 with a 1.76 goals-against average. He’s also among the league leaders in save percentage (.945).
“We all love Varly in here. I can’t say enough great things about him,” Duchene said. “We’re not allowed to comment on his situation, but it’s not going to affect us. We’re focused on (Dallas). We’re waiting to hear what’s going to happen. But it’s not affecting us at all.”
Giguere couldn’t agree more.
“A bunch of things can happen in a season. You have to be able to face them as a team,” Giguere said. “If we take that challenge on as a team, we’ll be OK.”
