Colorado has lost five in a row since the March 15 win over the Red Wings in Den­ver. … Bos­ton Univer­sity fresh­man Clay­ton Keller, the No. 7 over­all pick in the 2016 draft, signed with the Ari­zona Coy­otes on Sun­day and joined the team in St. Louis. The sign­ing came af­ter the Ter­ri­ers lost to Min­nesota Du­luth in the NCAA West Re­gional on Satur­day. That’s per­ti­nent be­cause Avalanche pick Tyson Jost, the No. 10 over­all choice, is in a sim­i­lar sit­u­a­tion af­ter North Dakota was elim­i­nated from the NCAA field Fri­day night. Jost is 19 and also a fresh­man, and if he signed with Colorado and played, his three-year en­try-level deal would slide to next sea­son be­cause he would play fewer than 10 games. … Af­ter the draft, Jost men­tioned play­ing at North Dakota “a year or two,” but his idol, for­mer North Dakota star Jonathan Toews of the Black­hawks, re­mained in Grand Forks for two sea­sons.

Cal­gary got the win over St. Louis when Sean Mon­a­han scored with three sec­onds left in over­time. That gave the Flames a 1-2 record on their trip af­ter losses at Wash­ing­ton and Nashville.
