Blues coach Ken Hitchcock said Friday that Colaiacovo will not make the trip to Minnesota for Saturday's game against the Wild and will be evaluated when the team returns. Ian Cole will return to the lineup Saturday.
"We'll further evaluate it the next couple days," Hitchcock said. "... This is mild so that's good news there. It could have been a lot worse there, too. Got a break there."
I've been getting frustrated lately, and the only thing keeping me sane was the team winning and other people stepping up and scoring. Then you just kind of let it go and realize you can end the series with one shot, that frustration goes away for a brief moment, and that's what happened.
