Pietrangelo, the Blues' leader in ice time during the regular season and playoffs, was hurt when he was hit from behind by the Kings' Dwight King late in the second period Saturday night. He missed Sunday's practice, but took part in the morning skate Monday and was said to be a game-time decision.

Blues coach Ken Hitchcock said if Pietrangelo took part in the pregame skate, he would be in the lineup. However, he was not on the ice with his team and will miss only his second game of the season.

Pietrangelo will be replaced in the lineup by Ian Cole, who will be making his first career appearance in the postseason.

Quote of the Day

When we started our journey we made a commitment to our fans to be relevant and to see the Chicago Blackhawks become the best professional hockey organization. There are not two finer symbols of that than Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane. The commitment we have made to these incredible young men is equal to the commitment they have made to our team, our fans, our entire organization and the city of Chicago.
