DENVER - The St. Louis Blues will wrap up a five-game road trip tonight in Denver, where they meet the Colorado Avalanche at 8 p.m. CT (FSMW, KMOX) for the second time this season.
Jake Allen earned a 27-save shutout in the last meeting between the teams on March 5, while Paul Stastny, Scottie Upshall and Patrik Berglund scored in a 3-0 victory.
The Blues have collected six of eight possible points on their road trip so far and would reclaim third place in the Central Division from the Nashville Predators, who beat the Phoenix Coyotes on Monday to take a two-point lead over St. Louis.
The Blues aren't expected to make any lineup changes tonight, sticking with a group that has won two consecutive games.
"The lines have an identity, they have roles. They know what they are," said Blues Head Coach Mike Yeo. "Our play has allowed us to keep them together a little bit, and with that, some chemistry should be developing."
Here is the projected lineup:
Jaden Schwartz - Paul Stastny - Vladimir Tarasenko
Alexander Steen - Patrik Berglund - David Perron
Zach Sanford - Ivan Barbashev - Magnus Paajarvi
Scottie Upshall - Kyle Brodziak - Ryan Reaves
Jay Bouwmeester - Alex Pietrangelo
Joel Edmundson - Colton Parayko
Carl Gunnarsson - Robert Bortuzzo
