Colorado Avalanche vs St Louis Blues NHL Semifinals Preview and Free Picks
Preview, Prediction and Picks
The Colorado Avalanche will look to complete a first-round playoff sweep when they visit the St. Louis Blues on Sunday.
The Avalanche won the first three games of the best-of-seven series by a combined score of 15-5.
Meanwhile, the Blues will only try to stay alive on their ice rink.
The Avalanche will play without center Nazem Kadri, who will serve Game 2 of his eight-game NHL suspension for his blind headshot against Blues defender Justin Faulk in Game 2.
Bednar offered J.T. Compher in the second row to replace Kadri and added forward Carl Soderberg to the roster. Compher froze Game 3 with a goal on an empty net, and Avalanche also had support goals from Alex Newhook, Brandon Saad, Tyson Jost and defender Ryan Graves at 5-1 on Friday.
Meanwhile, the Blues could be forced to deploy a makeshift defensive corps again, as Faulk, Robert Bortuzzo (boss), Vince Dunn (upper body) and Jake Walman (COVID-19 protocol) are questionable after missing the match. 3.
Defenders Steven Santini and Mitch Reinke, who were playing their first playoff games, had to replace.
The Blues were more competitive on Friday night than they were in the first two games. They beat the Avalanche 32-26 and kept Colorado star Nathan MacKinnon off the roster after scoring five goals and adding two assists in the first two games of the series.
