By Larry Wigge - NHL.com Columnist

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

I've got a lot of experience and there's a lot of young guys. It's even making me excited a little more. It's kind of a new life. At my age, I feel like I know a lot of things what to do, but I just cannot do it anymore. It's a lot easier to tell them what to do because they've still got the legs and hands to do it. I just know things, but I cannot do them anymore.
