The Avalanche-Blues series hasn’t even begun, and we already have some prime bulletin-board material for Avs players to stare at for the next three days, courtesy of former Avs forward Ryan O’Reilly.
Here is what O’Reilly said tonight to Blues reporters via Zoom, after St. Louis beat Minnesota in their season finale:
O'Reilly on Colorado: "We know that they have a lot of talent over there and they work hard. But for us, it's an exciting challenge. We're going to have some fun and we're going to beat them." #stlblues

Well, this series just got a lot more contentious.
But we’ll see who laughs last in this one.
