Donskoi (concussion) will miss Monday's afternoon game vs. the Red Wings.

Donskoi ditched the non-contact sweater and was a full participant in Sunday's practice. Still, Donskoi will miss his fifth straight game and will take the 11 days between games to get back to 100 percent. Look for him to travel on their five-game road trip and return to the lineup on February 1st in Philadelphia.

Grubauer will start Saturday afternoon vs. the Blues.

Grubauer stopped all 27 shots that he faced in Colorado's shutout win over the Sharks on Thursday. The win snapped a brief two-game losing skid for Gruabuer, who is 3-1-1 with a 2.40 GAA, .915 SV% and one shutout in his first five starts in January. In his first three starts against the Blues, Grubauer has gone 1-2-0 with a 3.35 GAA and .884 SV%.

Donskoi is in concussion protocol and is out indefinitely.

Donskoi was crushed in the neutral zone by Ryan Lindgren on Tuesday and did not return to the loss in New York. Lindgren was originally expected to have a hearing with the NHL DOPS but they decided not to suspend him after reviewing the hit. The Avalanche do not have a time table for Donskoi's return.

Grubauer allowed two goals on 30 shots in Colorado's win in New Jersey on Saturday. Pavel Francouz started last night vs. the Islanders, so they'll come back to Grubauer tonight in New York.
