Koivu is listed as day-to-day with an undisclosed injury. Also, defenseman Mike Lundin (lower-body) is out of the lineup. Defenseman Justin Falk will replace Lundin and Jeff Taffe, a former Blues draft choice, will be in for Minnesota.
Elliott will start in goal after Jaroslav Halak came down with the flu Friday. Halak was supposed to start but could play Sunday in Chicago if he's feeling better. Ben Bishop has been recalled from the Peoria Rivermen as the backup. Depending on matchups, if Huskins doesn't dress, Carlo Colaiacovo, who injured his right wrist and missed one game, would be reinserted back into the lineup. Also, if Porter doesn't dress, Ryan Reaves is expected to fill his slot.
I think I'm lucky to be here and you definitely don't take very many things for granted, if you take anything for granted. I definitely put my family and my wife and my close family in perspective, that they're the most important thing in the world. I want to do whatever I can to play hockey, but like I said, under the right circumstances.
