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

You don't see many. The [Drew] Doughtys, the [P.K.] Subbans, those are guys that create offense from the back and then on top of that ability, the size that he has. In the West you play against some pretty big players, and being able to clear the crease and contain the [Ryan] Getzlafs and the [Corey] Perrys and [Anze] Kopitars and players like that, we're excited about him going back there.
