ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) - Colorado Avalanche defenseman Colby Cohen skipped practice Wednesday because of a bad cold.
And he's one of the healthier players.
The Avs have been hit hard this season by a rash of injuries, leading to five players being placed on injured reserve, including top goaltender Craig Anderson (knee) and defenseman Adam Foote (concussion).
They're tied with New Jersey for most players on IR.
Colorado has another five skaters sidelined with various ailments, giving the team arguably the best lineup in the league that's unable to play.
