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

I think when you build a team, you look at pairs, and I think the pair of [Voracek and Giroux] is very good, certainly one of the top pairs in the League.
