Colorado Avalanche goalie Darcy Kuemper will miss Monday night's Game 4 against the Nashville Predators with a swollen right eye.

Pavel Francouz will get the start in goal for the Avs, who could clinch the Western Conference series with a win. They lead the best-of-seven series 3-0.

Kuemper had to leave Saturday's Game 3 after being accidentally struck in the face by Predators center Ryan Johansen's stick. Kuemper was able to skate off to the locker room holding a towel to his face.

Francouz stopped 18 of 20 shots in relief of Kuemper, helping the Avs to a 7-3 win.

The Avs called up Justus Annunen from their AHL affiliate to back up Francouz.
