Avs out to cure second-round woes vs. Blues

The Colorado Avalanche have breezed through the first round of the Stanley Cup playoffs four straight years, but the second round has been a problem.

The Avalanche hope to change that against the St. Louis Blues, starting with Tuesday night's Game 1 in Denver, and advance to the Western Conference finals for the first time in 20 years.

Since 2019, Colorado has gone 16-2 in the opening round of the playoffs, including this year's sweep of the Nashville Predators, but it has never made it past the second round in any of those seasons. The Avalanche lost in seven games in 2019 and 2020 and then saw a 2-0 series lead end up in a 4-2 loss to Vegas last year.
