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

That's today's game. That's one of the things you have to deal with when you're a championship team. Guys are going to earn more money based on their performance and what they've achieved, [and] deservedly so. [Saad] falls into that category.
