The Blues killed off five six power plays.
Johnson skated off the ice with 1:39 left in the first period after taking a puck to the left cheek. He returned at the start of the second period.
Craig Anderson was tested more than Bishop. Anderson turned aside 35 of 37 shots for Colorado (1-3-0).
The Avalanche beat the Blues 3-1 on Sept. 21 in St. Louis.
