The St. Louis Blues will meet with the Colorado Avalanche in NHL action in Ball Arena in Denver, CO, on Monday, May 17, 2021, at 10:00 PM (EDT). The Blues became one of the league’s most inconsistent players. The lack of depth on both ends of the ice is the primary cause of the team’s inconsistencies. Ryan O’Reilly has 24 goals and Mike Hoffman, Jordan Kyrou, and Brayden Schenn combined for 47 goals, but the backend struggled to find the back of the net, resulting in a team that only scores 2.9 goals per game. St. Louis is 4th at 27-20 in the NL West Division.

The defense improved recently, allowing just 2.9 goals per game, but the backend of their unit, like the offense, is a major concern. Fortunately, the Blues won’t have to worry about reserve goaltending in the Stanley Cup Playoffs because Jordan Binnington, who led the team to the Cup a few seasons ago, only allows 2.6 goals per game and will be in net.

  • The St. Louis Blues are 3-8 in their last 11 road matches.

  • The St. Louis Blues are 2-7 in their last 9 matches as a road underdog.

  • The St. Louis Blues are 0-5 in their last 5 matches playing on 3 or more days rest.

St Louis Blues vs Colorado Avalanche Predictions 5/17/2021

The Avalanche won the Presidents’ Trophy and had the best record in the NHL after finishing the season with 39 wins. The offense was instrumental in the team’s success this season, averaging 3.5 goals per game, which is the highest in the NHL. The current roster of Nathan MacKinnon, Mikko Rantanen, and Gabriel Landeskog is outstanding this season, scoring 70 goals in total, but the depth of the offense elevated it to new heights, with 9 skaters scoring 10 goals or more. Colorado is 1st at 39-13 in the NL West Division.

The defense, in addition to the offense, was outstanding, allowing just 2.3 goals per game.
