Avalanche goalie Craig Anderson, named one of the NHL's three stars last week with a 2-0 start, did not practice today because of a groin strain.
The Avalanche says Anderson's strain is minor in nature, and that he could resume practice Wednesday. But Anderson's left leg was in a wrap and he appeared to be limping today.
Anderson stopped 73-of-75 shots in Colorado's season-opening victories over San Jose and Vancouver.
If Anderson can't practice Wednesday, Peter Budaj would be the presumed starter for the Avs' next game, Thursday at Nashville.
