NASHVILLE — As if beating the West's top seed on its own ice wasn't going to be tough enough, the Avalanche must do it without a key player.

Avs defenseman Sam Girard, the electric 19-year-old, has been ruled out for Game 2 on Saturday with an upper-body injury. It was Girard's goal that got the party started for the Avs in the playoff-clinching win against the Blues.

Here's a hunch former first-round pick Duncan Siemens takes Girard's spot.
