DENVER (AP) The Colorado Avalanche will go with backup goaltender Andrew Hammond for Game 5 in Nashville after starter Jonathan Bernier suffered a lower-body injury.
Colorado trails the Predators 3-1 in the first-round series heading into Friday's game.
Hammond stepped in Wednesday to begin the third period after Bernier was ruled out. Hammond stopped all eight shots he faced in his first playoff appearance since April 17, 2015, while with Ottawa.
