Projected lineups for Blues, Canucks
Tonight's probable lineups for the Blues and Canucks, who will meet for the second time this season after St. Louis won 3-0 on Oct. 26 in Vancouver:

BLUES

Vladimir Sobotka - David Backes - T.J. Oshie

Brian Elliott will start in goal after blanking the Canucks last week with a 34-save effort. Jaroslav Halak, 1-5 with a 3.58 goals-against average and .843 save percentage, will be the backup.

Healthy scratches include defenseman Nikita Nikitin and winger Chris Porter. Defenseman Kent Huskins has a bone bruise on his left ankle and will not play. David Perron (post-concussion syndrome), Andy McDonald (concussion) and B.J. Crombeen (fractured shoulder) are on injured reserve.

CANUCKS

Roberto Luongo gets the start. Cory Schneider will be the backup.

Quote of the Day

One player does not make your team. One player can help your team, but one player does not make your team. We're not a bare-bones organization.
