Blues • Although they scored as many as three goals for the first time in nine games, the Blues had their three-game winning streak snapped in a 5-3 loss in Denver on Sunday. Brian Elliott was touched for four goals in less than two periods of action. The Blues, who are 0-1-1 against the Avalanche this season, need one point to clinch a playoff spot.
Avalanche • Colorado will miss the NHL playoffs for the third consecutive season. But the Avalanche have an 11-2-1 record in the 14 most recent matchups with the Blues, and are 3-1-2 in their last six games overall. Former Blue Erik Johnson is questionable because of a hand injury that has caused him to miss the last four games. Jamie McGinn had two goals against the Blues on Sunday night.
Injuries • Blues — RW T.J. Oshie (ankle), G Jaroslav Halak (groin) and C Scott Nichol (lower-body injury), out. Avalanche — D Erik Johnson (wrist), questionable; D Ryan Wilson (ankle) and RW Steve Downie (knee), out.
