Burakovsky scores 2, Avs beat Blues to clinch playoff berth

ST. LOUIS (AP) Andre Burakovsky scored twice and Brandon Saad and Pierre-Edouard Bellemare added goals as the Colorado Avalanche clinched a playoff berth with a 4-2 victory over the St. Louis Blues on Thursday night.

"It shows a lot of team character," Burakovsky said. "We're not making a lot of mistakes. We're chipping in when we need to. We're working down low and we're successful that way. Any time you put your skates on you have to come out and compete."

Colorado improved to 18-1-2 in its last 21 games. The Avalanche are 8-1-0 in April after finishing a league-best 12-2-3 in March, setting franchise records for wins and points in a month. The Avalanche are 5-1-0 against the Blues this season.
