The Colorado Avalanche Will Decide On Matt Duchene’s Playing Status After Monday’s Morning Skate

from Mike Chambers of the Denver Post,

Matt Duchene, the Avs' dynamic center and leading scorer in the regular season, was the last player off the ice Sunday at the team's practice facility and is likely to make his postseason debut vs. the Wild at Minnesota in Game 6 of their first-round playoff series Monday night.

Colorado coach Patrick Roy said a decision on playing Duchene will be made after the morning skate Monday, and if he plays for the first time in a little more than a month he will begin on the fourth line and be used primarily on the power play.

"But don't tell anybody," Roy joked about how he intends to utilize Duchene.
