ST. LOUIS - Keith Tkachuk's wrist is just fine.

The St. Louis Blues announced Friday that x-rays on the forward's left wrist were negative. He is listed as day-to-day.

Tkachuk was hit with a Matthias Ohlund slapshot early in the thrid period of Thursday's game in Vancouver. He left immediately and did not return.

The 36-year-old has 21 goals and 39 points in 69 games this season.

Quote of the Day

It's cool when you think about how many great American players have played the game and the two players that were at that 18-game point streak and what they've done in their careers. It's pretty cool right now, but it was kind of overshadowed by the loss.
