Avalanche defenseman Devon Toews returns to lineup against St. Louis Blues

Devon Toews felt like most Avalanche fans watching from a distance during the team’s four-game losing streak.

“Frustrating,” Toews said.

Colorado’s record this season with Toews in the lineup: 50-9-5. In games without Toews: 5-9-1.
