Avalanche's Semyon Varlamov: Manning crease against Columbus

Varlamov will be in goal for Thursday's matchup with the Blue Jackets.

Varlamov will get his first chance at redemption after allowing five goals against the Oilers on Nov. 23. It's been a rough start to the season for the 28-year-old, who's 5-9-0 with a disappointing .904 save percentage. Backup Calvin Pickard is challenging for starts, which puts the pressure on Varlamov to right the ship as soon as possible.
