The Colorado Avalanche took a commanding 3-1 series lead over the St. Louis Blues with a 6-3 win in Game 4. The Avs now return home to Ball Arena in Denver with a chance to close out the series on Wednesday.

Colorado’s Stanley Cup Odds Shorten

Colorado, the top Western Conference team in the regular season with 119 points, cruised through its opening-round series by sweeping No. 8 seed Nashville.

Nazem Kadri helped the Avalanche to the cusp of another series victory with a hat trick in Game 4. Kadri has been a focal point in the series after his collision with Binnington knocked the St. Louis goaltender out of the series with a lower body injury in Game 3.

The Avalanche, which swept the Blues in the first round of last year’s NHL Playoffs, are led by defenseman Cale Makar. Makar’s been a force for Colorado in the postseason, leading the team with 12 points (three goals, nine assists). Makar’s odds to win the Conn Smythe Trophy as NHL Stanley Cup playoff MVP dropped from +600 to +450 at DraftKings. He is the betting favorite. Teammate Nathan MacKinnon, who shares the team lead with five goals in the playoffs, is the second betting favorite at +550.

Colorado remains the consensus favorite at sportsbooks to win the 2022 Stanley Cup. Title odds on the Avalanche shortened from +155 to +135 at DraftKings after the Game 4 win.

Binnington A Huge Loss For The Blues

Binnington, who helped the Blues win the Stanley Cup as a rookie goaltender in 2019, was sorely missed in Game 4.

Ville Husso gave up five goals in Game 4 before the Avs added an empty net goal. St. Louis coach Craig Berube announced Sunday that Binnington will be out for the remainder of the series against Colorado.

David Perron was a bright spot again for the Blues with a pair of goals in Game 4. Perron leads the offensive attack for St. Louis with nine playoff goals.
