from the Denver Post,
The Avalanche confirmed Tuesday that the national swine flu scare has hit the team’s bench. Goalie Peter Budaj, out since Friday with flu-like symptoms, is suffering from the H1N1 virus, the team said.
Craig Anderson, who has started in goal in a team record-long 11 games to begin the season, will again be in the net tonight as the Avs take on the host Oilers.
Budaj was set to start in goal last Friday in Denver against Carolina. But he fell ill Thursday afternoon and was scratched. Tyler Weiman was recalled from Lake Erie to backup Anderson and he will remain on the roster.
From the first sign of Budaj’s flu last week, the team was concerned it might be swine flu.
