Here's a look at how the Avs' stack up historically against the Blues, courtesy, as always, of Hockey-Reference. Overall, the Avalanche forwards have done fairly well against the Blues, especially former St Louis resident Paul Stastny.

On the blueline, again we see fairly even numbers across the board with Greg Zanon being one guy who seems to always get the blues against St Louis (sorry).

Meanwhile, both J.S. Giguere and Semyon Varlamov have put up great career numbers between the pipes against the Blues.

Since you may be curious, Kevin Shattenkirk has 6 points (3g, 3a) in 6 games against his former club. Chris Stewart has 4 points (3g, 1a) in 6 games and Brian Elliott is 2-1-1 with a .864 save percentage against the Avs
