The previous game between those two opponents was held on April 26th, 2022 and ended in a 5-3 triumph for the Colorado Avalanche. Valeri Nichushkin was their best player, concluding the game with 1 goal and 1 assist for a 19:36 stay on the ice. Ryan O’Reilly tried his best for the St. Louis Blues. He scored 2 out of 7 attempts on goal for a 19:47 of playing time. O’Reilly also had a hand in one of the Blues’ other goals by laying an assist to his teammates. The Avalanche’ triumph may also be attributed to the team’s netminder. Darcy Kuemper managed to stop 29 of the 32 shots, which was enough to seal the victory. Jordan Binnington was between the sticks for the Blues and parried 29 of all the 33 shots he faced, but that proved insufficient for the win. There is a clear favorite when it comes to the latest five encounters, as Colorado Avalanche won 4 and the St. Louis Blues triumphed only on a single occasion.
