DENVER (AP) — Jaroslav Halak made 24 saves, David Backes had a goal and an assist and the streaking St. Louis Blues beat the Colorado Avalanche 4-1 on Wednesday night.

Alexander Steen scored his 20th of the season and Jaden Schwartz also had a goal for the Blues, who have won five straight.

Semyon Varlamov stopped 31 shots and Patrick Bordeleau scored for the Avalanche, who had won three straight.

Colorado’s 17-5-0 start was a franchise best this deep into the season, but the Blues have been the better team lately. They have won 10 of 12 and earned points in 11 of those games.

One of their wins in that stretch was a 7-3 victory over Colorado on Nov. 14, which was in the middle of a three-game skid for the Avalanche.
