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

This is a great day for me. This is something I've been thinking about for a long time. This is a great opportunity that the St. Louis Blues organization, (owner) Tom Stillman and Doug Armstrong are giving me and trusting me in doing...This is going to be a great challenge for me.
