Avalanche Struggling In Past Years

Although they have become heavy favorites to advance to the quarter finals, Colorado has been knocked out during the second round over the last three seasons. The season before that, they lost in the first round.

The Blues did not make Game one easy, and should continue to strike, based off of their first-round statistics. Against the Minnesota Wild, the Blues scored eight power play goals, had an 11.7% overall shooting percentage and had 188 shots on goal.

They played with momentum against the Wild, and won three straight games to close the series. If they can pick up a win in Game 2, they could take all of the momentum home with them in St. Louis.
