ST. LOUIS - With a spot in the Stanley Cup Playoffs hanging in the balance, the games just seem to keep getting bigger and bigger.
Thursday's matchup between the St. Louis Blues and Colorado Avalanche (7 p.m., FSMW, FSGO, KMOX) is no exception to that.
The Avalanche own the second Wild Card spot in the Western Conference with 82 points in 69 games. The Blues, who also have played 69 games, sit just three points back and could close that gap to one with a victory on Thursday.
"We've still got a lot of work to do," Blues Head Coach Mike Yeo said after Monday's win against the Ducks. "We're still on the outside looking in, but a little bit closer."
