Colorado are living up to their status as a favorite to win the Stanley Cup. In eight playoff games, Jared Bednar's team has seven wins and only one loss. They took out Nashville 4-0, and the score is at 3-1 in the series with St. Louis so far. Moreover, Colorado did not start the series very confidently – apparently there was not enough time to adjust after Nashville. First, the Avalanche won only in overtime (3-2), and then lost (1-4). However, in the last two meetings, they were able to play hard, achieving convincing victories (5-2 and 6-3).
St. Louis Blues
St. Louis, in turn, after the last round victory over Minnesota (4-2), showed themselves well in the first two meetings with Colorado. The score in the series was 1-1 before moving back home to the Blues. It seemed that the Blues would play good hockey there as well, but in fact Craig Berube's squad openly floundered and lost both games by a margin of three pucks. Now St. Louis is on the brink of failure.
