Avalanche: Goalie Se­myon Var­lamov re­mained off the ice Wed­nes­day and didn’t make the trip. Calvin Pickard will get the start in net and the re­called Jeremy Smith will serve as the backup. … Var­lamov has been un­avail­able for five of the past seven games be­cause of groin mus­cle is­sues. … Tyson Bar­rie didn’t prac­tice Wed­nes­day, but the Avs said it was a main­te­nance day. … This is a one-game trip for Colorado, which will meet the New York Rangers at home Satur­day night.

Stars: They are on a four-game points streak (3-0-1) and com­ing off 3-2 tri­umph Tues­day at Ari­zona. They are on a two-game home win­ning streak against the Avalanche and have won four of the last five games (4-1-0). Dal­las is 2-1 against Colorado this sea­son, scor­ing five power-play goals in those games. Since los­ing 6-5 in Den­ver in the sea­son opener for both teams, the Stars have de­feated the Avs 3-2 and 3-0.
