Avalanche's Erik Johnson: Will play Tuesday

Johnson (illness) will be in the lineup for Tuesday night's game against the Predators, Mike Chambers of the Denver Post reports.

Turns out the bug that was keeping Johnson from practicing wasn't anything serious, so he'll return to action without missing any games. The 2006 No. 1 overall draft pick has been great recently, notching a goal and three assists to accompany a plus-4 rating in his last six games.
