The Colorado Avalanche go on the road to oppose the St. Louis Blues in Monday NHL action.
The Colorado Avalanche have heated up with wins in six of seven after upending visiting Arizona 3-2 in a SO on Friday. Oliver Ekman-Larsson was the Coyotes offense with a pair of third period tallies but the offense was shutout in the shootout. Vinnie Hinostroza posted assists on both goals for the Coyotes and Darcy Kuemper allowed two goals on 27 shots.
Nathan MacKinnon and Derick Brassard scored first period power play goals for the Avalanche with MacKinnon netting the only goal of the shootout. Philipp Grubauer secured the two points for Colorado with a 42 save performance to improve to 17-9-4.
Blues are 4-0 in their last 4 home games and Blues are 5-1 in their last 6 overall and Blues are 10-2 in their last 12 games as a home favorite.
Avalanche are 7-19 in the last 26 meetings in St. Louis and Avalanche are 8-20 in the last 28 meetings and under is 17-8-1 in the last 26 meetings.
Both teams are playing well which makes the juice look even uglier. I’d take a shot at the under or just watch in a toss up…
