Rantanen’s status for tonight’s game was iffy on Monday and remains in question as he’s officially listed as a game-time decision.

Monitor Rantanen’s status when the Avalanche hit the ice for warmups at 8:30 p.m. ET.

Rantanen is “banged up” so his status for Tuesday’s game is up in the air. Keep an eye on Rantanen’s status during tomorrow’s morning skate, but Colin Wilson is expected to skate with Alexander Kerfoot and Gabriel Landeskog if Ratanen can’t play.
