ST. LOUIS (AP) - Peter Budaj stopped 35 shots, Chris Stewart had two goals and an assist and the Colorado Avalanche ended a five-game trip with a 4-0 win over the St. Louis Blues on Monday night.
Paul Stastny and Matt Duchene each scored goals, Wojtek Wolski had three assists and John-Michael Liles collected two assists for the Avs.
Budaj earned his seventh career shutout and first this season in his fifth start. The shutout was Colorado's fourth. It was also Budaj's 84th career victory, which tied him with Stephane Fiset for
fourth for most wins in franchise history.
The Blues, who have an NHL-worst 5-9-3 home mark, were coming off two road victories that came by shootout.
