Forwards Alexander Semin (tailbone) and Michael Nylander (shoulder) said they intend to play tonight against the Colorado Avalanche, and Matt Pettinger should be available after leaving Monday's practice early because of an undisclosed injury. Right wing Chris Clark (groin) has been ruled out.Be sure to read his piece today for an update on Eric Fehr.

Chris Chelios hits a milestone.
