ST. LOUISPaul Kariya will not be in the lineup for the Blues Tuesday night (8 p.m. ET, CBC) when they face elimination from the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

"It's a no go," Kariya said Tuesday morning. "But I'm getting closer every day."

The Blue trail the Vancouver Canucks 3-0 in the series and hop to force a Game 5 with a win tonight. Should the series advance to five games, Kariya said he would be able to play.

Quote of the Day

It's such a privilege to be one of these 80 great players to do this milestone, and it doesn't get better than this doing it where I started. It means a lot to me. A big thanks goes to all the players tonight who helped me to achieve that and also all the players through my career.
