Varlamov is occupied with hockey thoughts

 If Semyon Varlamov is stressed out, he shows no outward sign of it.

While the Denver District Attorney weighs whether to formally charge the Avalanche goalie after an arrest last month because of allegations of domestic abuse and kidnapping, Varlamov said he remains unworried.

"Believe me, I don't think about the situation anymore," Varlamov said Wednesday. "I have lots of things to do. I have a lot of friends in town, some good Russian friends too. My job is not easy, and I have to stay focused on my job."

The DA's office has until Dec. 2 to charge Varlamov after his Oct. 30 arrest. Varlamov recently hired a new attorney, Saskia Jordan, to represent him. Varlamov denies all allegations and won't get into anything more specific about the allegations.

Varlamov, who will start Thursday's game against the Phoenix Coyotes at Jobing.com Arena, had a strong game Tuesday against Chicago. He made 36 saves in a 5-1 victory, atoning for a shaky effort -- along with the rest of his teammates -- Saturday against Florida.

"We got out to that early lead, and that makes it easier for any goalie," Varlamov said. "We had a lot of games like that (earlier) in the season. And so I can only give the credit for that to my teammates."

Duchene sits at home. Avalanche center Matt Duchene did not make the trip with the team and will not play against Phoenix or Los Angeles.

Duchene tried to skate before Wednesday's practice but experienced pain from his oblique injury. He will stay in Denver to recuperate. On Tuesday, Avs coach Patrick Roy said he was optimistic Duchene would return Saturday in Los Angeles, but things changed a day later.

"There's no point in rushing this," Roy said. "We need him at 100 percent, and after skating (Wednesday), he realized he would not be able to play."
Duchene, who leads the Avs in scoring with 20 points in 19 games, suffered the injury Saturday against Florida.
