Avalanche Goalie Grubauer, D-man Johnson Out Indefinitely

Colorado Avalanche goaltender Philipp Grubauer and defenseman Erik Johnson are out indefinitely. Coach Jared Bednar delivered his team’s bad injury news hours before Game 2 of its second-round series against the Dallas Stars.

Dallas leads the series 1-0.

Grubauer appeared to pull something three minutes into the second period of Game 1 Saturday night and needed assistance to get off the ice. Pavel Francouz takes over as Colorado’s starting goaltender.

Johnson left later in the period after a collision with Stars forward Blake Comeau. Bednar said Kevin Connauton would replace Johnson in the Avalanche lineup.

Forward Matt Calvert is day to day with an undisclosed injury.
