Flu sidelines Blues forward McDonald

DETROIT -- St. Louis Blues forward Andy McDonald is out of the lineup for the game Sunday against the Detroit Red Wings because of the flu.

As a result of McDonald's absence, the Blues are playing with seven defensemen, but they're using Kris Russell as a left wing on the fourth line.

McDonald has four goals and 11 assists for 15 points in 26 games this season.

Quote of the Day

He is, in my opinion, one of the best defensemen in the NHL and continuing to grow. I think his game, from an offensive standpoint, he continues to drive our offense... I think there's still tremendous upside for Oliver.
