THE COLORADO AVALANCHE JUST GOT A VERY BAD NEWS AHEAD OF GAME 6

JUN 26, 2022  (15H26)      JEFF DROUIN
Since the beginning of the Stanley Cup final series between the Avalanche and the Tampa Bay Lightning, Colorado's best player (let's say, after Nathan MacKinnon and Cale Makar) is without a doubt Valeri Nichushkin.

Apparently, the winger got injured towards the end of the most recent duel and the news is very worrying:

"Valeri Nichushkin is having a lot of trouble walking into Amalie Arena today. (he is clearly limping)

Jared Bednar, on Nichushkin's availability for Game #6: "Yep, we hope he's in the game tonight."" - Chris Johnston

A nasty surprise for them on this crucial game day.

It's concerning and it seems obvious that even if he plays, he really won't be 100%. We're talking about a potentially heavy loss for the Colorado Avalanche here.

Nichushkin, 27, has 52 points (25 goals) in 62 games this season with the Avalanche, plus 15 points (9 goals) in 19 playoff games.

This will clearly be a case to watch very closely in the coming hours and could be a real game changer for both the Tampa Bay Lightning and the Colorado Avalanche. More details to follow!

*Please also note that forward Andre Burakovsky (Avalanche) is also a doubt for tonight, and let's not forget Nazem Kadri, who is playing with one hand. Two other players that are very important to them here.
