Avalanche visit Blues before long homestand

Jan 15, 2009 - 8:42 AM Colorado (22-20-1) at St Louis (16-23-3), 8:30 pm EST

ST. LOUIS (Ticker) -- Before enjoying a season-long, eight-game homestand, the Colorado Avalanche will meet the St. Louis Blues on Thursday.

The Avalanche have been strong at home this season, posting a 13-8-0 record at the Pepsi Center. Colorado had a three-game winning streak snapped Tuesday, suffering a 4-3 setback in Columbus.

Leading-scorer Ryan Smyth netted a power-play goal and Brett Clark had two assists for the Avalanche, who played without five regulars in their lineup - including centers Paul Stastny and captain Joe Sakic.

The 32-year-old Smyth, who is one goal shy of 300 for his career, has recorded 15 goals and 32 points on the season. He is currently on a four-game points streak.

The Blues, who just concluded a three-game road trip through Western Canada, are hoping to avoid a third consecutive loss.

Dan Hinote scored the club's lone goal in Tuesday's 3-1 loss to the Calgary Flames.

Keith Tkachuk left the contest in the second period with a jaw injury, failing to record a point for the second straight game. He remains one assists away from 500 for his career.
