Blues go for season sweep of Oilers

ST. LOUIS -- The St. Louis Blues will go for a season sweep of the Edmonton Oilers when the teams meet Tuesday at Scottrade Center.

It's the third meeting of the month between the teams, following Blues wins March 1 in St. Louis and March 23 in Edmonton.

Here are the probable lineups for both teams:

OILERS

Quote of the Day

We've got a team filled with captains, that's what I think. With these first two games we got in, we're really dominating and moving the puck really fast, and it's worked out really good.
