Blues: They are on the verge of clinch­ing a Western Con­fer­ence play­off berth. … The Blues have won two straight, both over the Ari­zona Coy­otes in a home- and- home set, and are 12- 1- 1 in their last 14 games. … Vladimir Tarasenko had two goals and two as­sists in the wins over Ari­zona, and he has eight goals in the past 12 games.

Avalanche: Calvin Pickard will start in goal Fri­day. … The ten­ta­tive plan is to play Tyson Jost be­tween Matt Duch­ene and Gabe Lan­deskog. Lan­deskog, the Avalanche cap­tain, said of Jost’s re­cep­tion in the dress­ing room: “That’s pretty sim­ple. Make sure he feels wel­come. Make sure he knows ev­ery­body. Ev­ery­body’s al­ready in­tro­duced them­selves. Make sure we take care of him, talk to him and make sure he knows what he’s do­ing out there. Most of all, to make sure he’s com­fort­able and to an­swer any ques­tions he might have.” … The Avalanche will be at­tempt­ing to snap a seven- game los­ing streak. Terry Frei, The Den­ver Post
