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:
Life's about opportunity and how you respond to that opportunity, and obviously he must have some swagger about him, some confidence about him, because he was solid. He made some good saves. He was 6-foot-3 on every shot, which is a good thing for a goalie. He played well. We got a win.
