The Blues are hunting for their first four game winning streak of the season against an Avalanche team hunting for their fourth win of the year.

USA TODAY Sports

As beaten up and banged up as the Blues are, it seems weird to mention that a win tonight is their fourth in a row. Maybe it's because the depth's better this year, but adversity keeps throwing itself at the Blues, and the team keeps telling it to back off. It's a much improved situation than the end of last season, where adversity kept on keeping on, and the team didn't know what to do with it.

Perhaps one of the most concerning side stories going into the game tonight is Jay Bouwmeester, who has come down with the bacterial infection. Is his iron man streak in danger? He's projected to start with Alex Pietrangelo tonight, so let's all keep our fingers crossed. Here're the lines from STLToday.com:
