Blues block off Avalanche 1-0
DENVER -- Al MacInnis scored on the first shot of the game, and Brent Johnson posted his fifth career shutout as the St. Louis Blues beat Colorado 1-0 on Wednesday night.
Johnson stopped all 26 shots he faced, including back-to-back attempts by Joe Sakic with six minutes left.
Colorado's Patrick Roy had 21 saves in failing for the third straight time to earn his 200th regular-season victory with the Avalanche. With 289 wins in Montreal, he remains on the verge of becoming the first NHL goalie to have 200 wins with two teams.
Barely a minute into the game, MacInnis scored from the right circle. MacInnis' shot through traffic deflected off a skate and trickled past Roy at 1:13.
Colorado, outshot 8-5 in the first period, increased its pressure in the second period but couldn't solve Johnson, who stopped both Ville Nieminen and Eric Messier.
Later in the period, Colorado's Chris Drury chipped a shot just over a partially open goal as Johnson scrambled back into position. Roy made a sprawling save to rob Doug Weight from point-blank range.
It was St. Louis' first regulation victory in Denver since Dec. 6, 1996. In the nine meetings in Denver following that win, the Blues had gone 0-6-2-1.
