ENGLEWOOD, Colo. – The injury-riddled Colorado Avalanche will be without forward Ian Laperriere and defenceman Adam Foote when they travel to Nashville for a game against the Predators on Tuesday night.

Foote sustained a triceps injury Sunday night in a game against Minnesota. He’ll be re-evaluated later this week. Laperriere has a stiff back and is listed as day-to-day.
