Olver Healthy Scratch, Dupuis Gets Start

The Colorado Avalanche will use the same lines as Thursday’s season opener, with one exception.

Rookie center Mark Olver, who was a surprise addition to the regular season roster, is a healthy scratch tonight and will be replaced by Phillipe Dupuis.

Olver saw limited playing time in the opener after his tripping penalty early in the first period allowed Chicago to score a power play goal.

Philadelphia defenseman (and future Hall of Famer) Chris Pronger is a game-time decision tonight, though he practiced in the team’s skatearound.
