Carlo Colaiacovo made a quick “second” impression Monday night. Beginning another stint with the Blues almost five years to the day after he arrived here in a trade, Colaiacovo had an assist on his first shift back with the club. It came on the Blues’ first goal by Vladimir Sobotka in their 3-0 win over Minnesota. Colaiacovo played his first game in St. Louis on Nov. 26, 2008. A day short of the fifth anniversary, he was in the lineup Monday to replace Kevin Shattenkirk, who was ill. Colaiacovo’s first point didn’t take long. “No, first shift,” he said. “I couldn’t have written it any better. It got me going and obviously the excitement was there to start the game. Just glad I can contribute.” Blues coach Ken Hitchcock said that Colaiacovo, who re-signed a one-year deal with the Blues on Nov. 12, has been ready for a week. “He’s a great puck distributor, he’s smart, he plays sneaky good minutes,” Hitchcock said. “He’s a real complementary player. He can play minutes killing penalties, he can play on the power play ... he can add to the group.”
