Some locker-room audio here, following Friday night’s blowout win over the New York Rangers.

Before I post it, a goalie update: Semyon Varlamov is back to being an active hockey player. Pavel Francouz was sent back to the Eagles. Avs will take Sunday off, so not much news ’til Monday. Then, it’s off to Canada for five games. I’ll be in Montreal, Toronto and Ottawa. Any BSN subscribers from around there who want to meet up at any of the games, just let me know.

First up on the uncut audio is the new fan favorite, Ryan Graves, talking about scoring his first goal as an NHL player. I like this kid’s play so far, big-time. I like his well-spoken demeanor, too.
