ST. LOUIS - Blues defenseman Vince Dunn was hit with a puck up high in the first period of Game 3 vs. San Jose on Wednesday. Dunn left the game and did not return.
On Thursday, Blues Head Coach Craig Berube said Dunn is day-to-day with an upper-body injury.
"He's a guy that plays a lot of different situations, obviously on the power play and 5-on-5, he's a guy who can skate and move the puck and helps get out of your end pretty clean," Blues defenseman Jay Bouwmeester said of Dunn. "I don't know how long he will be out or what the deal is yet, but he's a guy who has played really well for us all year. When something like that happens, it's never good, but it's something you can rally around. It's going to be an opportunity for someone else. We've had guys come in and out of the lineup all year. We feel like we're pretty deep as a group on defense."
Carl Gunnarsson, who was dealing with an injury and hasn't played since Game 7 vs. Dallas, is ready to go according to Berube.
Dunn has played in 16 games this postseason, recording two goals and five assists (seven points), which ranks third among Blues defensemen in the playoffs.
