ST. LOUIS -- The St. Louis Blues will be without their top defenseman when they face the Anaheim Ducks on Saturday.

Alex Pietrangelo was a late scratch, replaced in the lineup by Ian Cole, as Pietrangelo has the flu.

Pietrangelo has 18 points (five goals, 13 assists) in 27 games and is the team leader in time on ice and ninth in the League (25:43).

Quote of the Day

There's no discouragement in that room. There's no issues there at all to be honest with you. It's more about, 'Hey, it's opportunities for players.' And if we become that bad of a team because of one player, it's not a real good sign for our hockey club. So this is part of sports. It's part of hockey.
