Landeskog (lower-body) will be a game-time decision on Thursday.

Landeskog has been sidelined by a lower-body injury since October 26th but all signs are pointing towards him playing Thursday in Montreal. Landeskog, who had three goals and four assists in 11 games before getting hurt, will likely be back on the top-line with Nathan MacKinnon and Mikko Rantanen.

Rantanen (ankle) will play Wednesday in Toronto.

Rantanen returned to the lineup on Saturday but missed the third period. Rantanen had one goal and three assists before leaving and holding him out of the third period was likely more precautionary since the Avalanche were up massive. Rantanen was also held out of Monday's practice but was on the ice for the morning skate and will play in Toronto.

Calvert is expected to return to the lineup Wednesday in Toronto.

Calvert is two and a half weeks removed from a scary incident in Vancouver, where he took a puck off the side of the head. He left the ice bloodied but was a full participant in Monday's practice and is expected to play Wednesday against the Maple Leafs. Calvert is expected to start on the second line with Nazem Kadri and enters the contest with 12 points (4G / 8A) in 20 games this season.

Grubauer led the Avalanche onto the ice for warmups.

Grubauer stopped 19 of 20 shots in Colorado's win over the Oilers on Wednesday. The win snapped a brief two-game losing skid for Grubauer, who has posted an .899 SV% in four games since returning from injury. Pavel Francouz faced 36 shots vs. the Blackhawks yesterday, so it could be a busy night for Grubauer on Saturday.
