#050 ASA TOP PLAY ON 10* Colorado -135 over St Louis, Wed at 10:30 PM ET -If not for injuries last year both in the regular season and post-season, the Avalanche were already built to win a Stanley Cup and would have had a great chance in doing so. Now the Avalanche have added a couple more pieces heading into this season and the sky is the limit with this team. Colorado is on home ice now and facing a Blues club that lost a couple key contributors from last season's team. Additionally, goalie Jordan Binnington was great in home games last season but had a 3.10 GAA on the road last season. Binnington is likely to struggle with a Colorado club that scored 3.37 goals per game last season to rang among the best in the league. The Avalanche also allowed an average of only 2.71 goals per game to also rank among the best in the league. The Blues could take awhile to jell early this season with their former captain, Pietrangelo, now with the Golden Knights in Vegas. On the other hand, this Avs team is on a mission after falling short in last year's post-season due to the injury bug. The Avalanche are on a mission for the Stanley Cup and will want to make a statement on opening night for sure. 10* COLORADO
