Probable lineup for Blues
CHICAGO -- Here is the projected lineup for the St. Louis Blues, who will face the Chicago Blackhawks tonight at the United Center:

T.J. Oshie - David Backes - Chris Stewart
Andy McDonald - Patrik Berglund - David Perron
Vladimir Sobotka - Jason Arnott - Jamie Langenbrunner
B.J. Crombeen - Scott Nichol - Chris Porter

Carlo Colaiacovo - Alex Pietrangelo
Barret Jackman - Kevin Shattenkirk
Ian Cole - Roman Polak

Jaroslav Halak will start in goal, with Brian Elliott the backup. Halak will try to extend a personal-best streak of eight straight wins. He has a 1.45 goals-against average and .945 save percentage in this 8-0-0 run.

Blues scratches include newcomer Jaden Schwartz and defensemen Kent Huskins (bruised hand). Defenseman Kris Russell (concussion) and forwards Alex Steen (concussion) and Matt D'Agostini (concussion) remain on injured reserve. Steen and D'Agostini are not on the trip with the team.

In case you missed it earlier, here's the lineup the Blackhawks likely will counter with.


Quote of the Day

I remember the first time at Wrigley Field all of us had the long johns, the turtlenecks and the extra equipment because we were afraid of being cold. Halfway through the first period everybody's ripping everything off and we just ended up wearing what we would normally wear for a game at the United Center.
