Blues lose Paajarvi, Stewart with injuries
The St. Louis Blues lost forwards Magnus Paajarvi and Chris Stewart with upper-body injuries during their 6-1 victory against the Nashville Predators at Bridgestone Arena on Saturday night.

The St. Louis Blues lost forwards Magnus Paajarvi and Chris Stewart with upper-body injuries during their 6-1 victory against the Nashville Predators at Bridgestone Arena on Saturday night.

Paajarvi played five shifts in the first period but did not return to the ice following the conclusion of his fifth at 10:44. He was hit by Nashville's Victor Bartley in the defensive zone at 10:02, but stayed on the ice following the hit.

Stewart, who got shoved into the corner boards by Patric Hornqvist midway through the second period, was lost for the third period after he also returned for a few shifts.

"We'll see how these guys are in the next couple of days," coach Ken Hitchcock said, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. "We're going to need a further evaluation on this thing (Sunday) on both guys. But Paajarvi was playing great, that's the tough part. And Stewy had a great game (Friday) and he was playing well again tonight."

Quote of the Day

That group is not satisfied until we win a Stanley Cup. When we do win that Stanley Cup, I don't think we'll be satisfied then either. We're going to want another one. We have the group to do it. We have all the pieces. We just need to put them together.
