ST. LOUIS (AP) — Artturi Lehkonen scored twice, Darcy Kuemper stopped 29 shots and the Colorado Avalanche beat the St. Louis Blues 5-2 in Game 3 of their second-round series.

Logan O’Connor, Nazem Kadri and Gabriel Landeskog also scored as the Avalanche to a 2-1 lead in the best-of-seven series.

Ryan O’Reilly had a goal and an assist, and Colton Parayko also scored for the Blues. Jordan Binnington started in goal for St. Louis and made three saves before leaving the game 6:45 into the first period after Kadri and Blues defenseman Calle Rosen collided into him after getting their skates tangled up in the crease.

Avalanche head coach Jared Bednar said postgame that defenseman Samuel Girard will miss the rest of the playoffs after suffering a broken sternum following a hit from Blues forward Ivan Barbashev early in the first period.

Ville Husso stopped 19 of 23 shots in relief. Game 4 is Monday night in St. Louis.
