Colorado will look to get into the win column against their Central Division rivals from St. Louis tonight in the third of five meetings between the Blues and Avalanche. St. Louis has taken the first two games, a 3-2 shootout win Nov. 1, and a 3-2 overtime win Dec. 13. The Avalanche welcome back goaltender Semyon Varlamov to the lineup. The 26-year-old has missed 17 of the first 33 games due to groin injuries.
St. Louis is looking to conclude its’ three-game road trip with a win. The Blues are 0-1-1 following losses in L.A. and San Jose. They’ll be looking for a fourth straight win in Denver tonight after an eight-game stretch in the Mile High City, which saw them go 0-6-2.
Puck drop is at 8 p.m. ET on NBCSN. You can also watch the game via NBC Sports’ Live Extra stream.
