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

Obviously there's a lot of expectations around me but it's something I try not to focus on. I'm just trying to go out there, be myself on the ice every day, try to get better, be myself around the guys in the locker room. I think that's what's made me successful and the person that I am.
