Colorado Avalanche @ St. Louis Blues: Meaningless Records

Blues head into this afternoon's game at Scottrade with 111 points and 52 wins so far for the season. Avs are approaching 50 wins and Varmarlov is looking to match his coach in single season wins for the Colorado franchise. But they shouldn't get their hopes up.

Today is the 4th and final meeting between the St. Louis Blues and Colorado Avalanche.  The Blue Note has won all three against the Snowslip so far this season, with the most recent meeting being a 2-1 victory back in March in Denver.

While the Blues have surpassed their franchise record for single season wins with 52, Colorado is looking for their second season with 50 wins.  The last (and only other) time it happened was when the man behind the bench for the Snowslide was on the ice between the pipes and that team took home Lord Stanley's Cup at the end of the season.  Varmarlov is also looking to match his coach's franchise record for single season wins.  But when it comes to records, I think Brian Elliott summed it up best, "(The record) is a special thing, but tomorrow it really means nothing."

The Blues are 5-2-0 in their last seven games.  Steen, the Blues' player nominated for the Masteron by local media, is questionable to start today and Tarasenko is still out.  But at least Jackman is back on the ice for today's game!  XXX
