St.Louis the choice in Game 3

After starting the postseason with five wins, the Colorado Avalanche lost Game 2 of their playoff series 4-1 to the Blues. The series now heads to St. Louis, which is tied at 1.

The first two games in the series couldn’t have looked more different. Despite overtime, Game 1 was a masterclass of the Avalanche.

Colorado held a 5.1 to 1.9 lead in expected goals, and were it not for a miraculous performance from goaltender Jordan Binnington, Colorado would have won in a flop.

Game 2 was a different story. The Blues made some shrewd defensive adjustments and held Colorado 5-on-5 with just 1.4 goals expected and three high-risk chances. The way home gives the Blues a chance to get the matchups they want.

We already knew the Blues could score impressive goals, but with the goalkeeping they’re getting from Binnington and a defense that looks like it could match Colorado’s fast-paced offense, St. Louis remains a real underdog in this series.
