Avalanche vs. Blues: The next great rivalry?

Fight! Fight! Fight! It was a mean night in St. Louis, with the Blues thumping Colorado on the scoresheet and in the alley. But this was the first of only four meetings between the two franchises this season and based on the standings, the new divisional mates could meet in the post-season as well.

Fight! Fight! Fight! It was a mean night in St. Louis, with the Blues thumping Colorado on the scoresheet and in the alley. But this was the first of only four meetings between the two franchises this season and based on the standings, the new divisional mates could meet in the post-season as well. Not only that, but with solid young corps and great current rosters, these two teams could be both great and full of hate for years to come.

The Avs got mad last night when Chris Stewart (who was traded from Denver to the Blues in 2011 with Kevin Shattenkirk in the Erik Johnson deal) celebrated his pummeling of Cory Sarich:

Watching Vladimir Sobotka get the better of young Colorado star Matt Duchene probably didn't help:

And seeing Ryan Reaves pound on Cody McLeod probably didn't sit well either:

But we all know that the Great Glass-shaker Patrick Roy will not let his team be broken by this setback. The Avs get St. Louis at home on Nov. 27 and Colorado will certainly be primed to avenge the humiliation. Whether the Avs do it with goals, fists or both, circle your calendars, because it's gonna be a fun one.
