DENVER — The Colorado Avalanche will be without physical forward Matt Calvert for Game 3 against San Jose.

Calvert was banged up after taking a hit while delivering a pass to Nathan MacKinnon for an empty-net goal late in Game 2 at San Jose.

Sven Andrighetto will take Calvert’s place in the lineup Tuesday. The second-round series is tied at a game apiece.

Sharks captain Joe Pavelski and forward Joonas Donskoi didn’t travel with the team, coach Peter DeBoer said. Pavelski and Donskoi were both hurt during the Vegas series and have yet to play in this one.

DeBoer also said center Gustav Nyquist went home to be with his wife for the birth of their child. He’s expected back in time for the game.
