The Blues are one team that has quite a bit of potential, but also a lot of shortcomings heading to the season here. However, the Blues are coming into the game with an offense that did good last year. The Blues scored 3.14 goals per game and converted on the power play at 24.3% on the year. Defensively the Blues allowed only 2.66 goals per game while killing off 79.3% of the power plays faced.
The Blues do have Vladimir Tarasenko coming back to help guide the offense for Saint Louis. The goalie situation in Saint Louis is looking more towards Jordan Binnington and that could help the Blues out quite a bit in the game with a goalie position that is fairly settled already.
Colorado is heading to the game here sitting in a good position. The Avalanche finished the year on a disappointing note, but were very impressive in how they played prior to that. The offense for Colorado ended up getting 3.37 goals per game while converting on the power play at 19.1%. Defensively the Avalanche allowed 2.71 goals per game and killed off 81.4% of the penalties.
The Avalanche will be looking to see how well Nathan MacKinnon is able to come back this year. Last year MacKinnon was able to lead the team and did not get that much in the way of support. A big question mark looming for Colorado is how well Philipp Grubauer is able to bounce back from his injuries and if he bounces back nicely Colorado will do good.
