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

You know what? We've played in some pretty special buildings along this playoff run so far. You start in Detroit, you go to Montreal, you come here … I think it's the first team to beat three Original Six teams to get to the Final if I'm not mistaken. That says how tough the road has been. Those are tough places to win.
