Before today’s 30 in 30 I send my condolences to the Galimov family. Alexander Galimov, the lone player-survivor from the Lokomotiv crash, died due to his injuries sustained in the plane crash.
Today I pass along three team previews of the Columbus Blue Jackets, Dallas Stars, and Detroit Red Wings.
The Avs and Jackets will meet four times: 10/12/11, 2/24/12, 3/1/12, and 4/5/12.
The Avs and Stars meet four times with three meetings in November: 11/4/11, 11/18/11, 11/28/11, and 1/14/12.
The Avalanche will have their season opener on 10/8/11 against the Wings where they will honor fallen Avs, Wade Belak, Ruslan Salei, and Karlis Skrastins, while also retiring Peter Forsberg’s number. They also meet three other times: 11/8/11, 12/4/11, and 2/25/12.
Due up in the series is the Edmonton Oilers. Visit their FanSided page, Oil on Whyte.
