AVALANCHE (29-41-8) at BLUES (36-33-10)
TV: ALT2 (HD), FS-MW (HD)
Last 10: Colorado 3-7-0; St. Louis 5-4-1
Season series: This is the fourth and final regular-season game between these two clubs. If the Avs can win on Tuesday, it would be their second straight season sweep of St. Louis. Colorado will also aim to extend its winning streak at Scottrade Center to four games.
Big story: Both Colorado and St. Louis have already been eliminated from playoff contention and are looking forward to the 2011 Entry Draft as a means toward beefing up their squads for next season. The Avs will play the remainder of their schedule without second-leading scorer Paul Stastny, who is out with a leg injury. Also, defenseman John-Michael Liles will not travel with the Avs due to a concussion suffered Sunday against the Calgary Flames.
Avalanche: With only four games left on their schedule and a seven-point lead over the NHL's last-place Edmonton Oilers, the Avs have almost guaranteed themselves of staying out of the League's cellar this season. The Stastny and Liles injuries were the latest in a string of ailments that have hit Colorado and were a big reason for the subpar season.
