Blues to face Stars without Langenbrunner
ST. LOUIS -- The St. Louis Blues, already without winger T.J. Oshie for two games with a left wrist injury, also were without winger Jamie Langenbrunner on Monday against the Dallas Stars because of the flu.

Blues coach Ken Hitchcock indicated at the team's morning skate that Langenbrunner, a former Star, had the flu but that he would be probable for the game. He's the third player (defenseman Alex Pietrangelo and Kevin Shattenkirk) in recent weeks to miss a game because of the flu.

Langenbrunner had played in the team's first 34 games, recording 2 goals and 12 points.

Quote of the Day

You get the right the whistles at the right times, you can leave him out there. He's a beast when it comes to being on the ice. I thought [Saturday] he was a big man. That first period, he did that lateral cut and it was like three bowling pins bounced off him. There's not too many guys that can do that.
