NBCSN’s coverage of the 2020-21 NHL season continues with Wednesday’s matchup between the Colorado Avalanche and St. Louis Blues. Coverage begins at 10:30 p.m. ET on NBCSN. You can watch the game online and on the NBC Sports app by clicking here.

The top two Western Conference teams from the 2019-20 regular season face off in Denver as the Blues travel west to take on the Avalanche on opening night. The Blues, who owned the best record in the West, failed to defend their title and were upset in the First Round of the playoffs by Vancouver, while the Avs fell in seven games to Dallas in the Second Round.

In late December, the Blues named forward Ryan O’Reilly the 23rd captain in franchise history. O’Reilly replaces Alex Pietrangelo, who signed with Vegas as a free agent this past offseason. O’Reilly enters his third season with St. Louis and was named the 2019 Conn Smythe Trophy winner after helping lead the Blues to a Stanley Cup title.

Nathan MacKinnon finished as the runner-up in the MVP race last season, losing to Edmonton’s Leon Draisaitl for the Hart Trophy. It marked the second time in the last three seasons that the 25-year-old finished as a runner-up for the award. MacKinnon finished the regular season with the fifth most points in the league (93) and recorded the fourth most points in the playoffs (25) despite only advancing to the Second Round. The forward now enters the 2020-21 campaign as one of the favorites to win the Hart Trophy.
