ST. LOUIS - Vladimir Sobotka will be in the lineup this afternoon when the Blues host the Colorado Avalanche in the regular-season finale at 5 p.m. at Scottrade Center (FSMW, KMOX).
Sobotka will be playing his first game as a Blue in three years after spending time in the KHL.
Now that the Blues have clinched third place in the Central Division and have a first-round playoff matchup with the Minnesota Wild locked in, there will be a few players that won't be in the lineup for this afternoon's game.
Defenseman Alex Pietrangelo and forwards Scottie Upshall and Kyle Brodziak are expected to be out of the lineup tonight.
Chris Butler, who was recalled earlier Sunday, will play.
Here is the projected lineup for the game against the Colorado Avalanche:
Jaden Schwartz - Ivan Barbashev - Vladimir Tarasenko
Alexander Steen - Patrik Berglund - David Perron
Vladimir Sobotka - Jori Lehtera - Magnus Paajarvi
Dmitrij Jaskin - Zach Sanford - Ryan Reaves
Jay Bouwmeester - Chris Butler
Joel Edmundson - Colton Parayko
Carl Gunnarsson - Jordan Schmaltz
