ST. LOUIS -- The Columbis Blue Jackets and St. Louis Blues, coming off road victories Thursday, had optional skates Friday morning with limited participation.
One change likely for the Blue Jackets will be the addition of forward Blake Comeau. He was acquired from the Calgary Flames on Wednesday, got his visa and working papers in order and will be available Friday.
Here are the projected lineups for when the teams face off Friday night at Scottrade Center:
I first met him when I was 19 years old and he coached me for 13 consecutive years. I don't know how many athletes who have had that pleasure. Al Arbour was a man that left us not only feeling like champions, but left us with a lot of great memories that we can carry on through life.
