BUFFALO - With the Blues looking for a spark after two consecutive losses, Head Coach Craig Berube has made significant changes to the lines for Tuesday's game in Buffalo.
When the team takes the ice against the Sabres, fans will see four new forward lines, two players making their season debuts, and Jake Allen getting the start in goal.
"We're trying to find some scoring," Berube said after practice on Sunday. "In the last couple of these games, we're not getting enough goals. I'm just trying to find some scoring, some chemistry somewhere, maybe a spark here and there."
Two new faces in the lineup are forwards Jordan Kyrou and Austin Poganski, recalled Monday from the San Antonio Rampage. It will be the season debut for Kyrou and NHL debut for Poganski.

Berube said Zach Sanford, who left Saturday's game with an upper-body injury, is considered day-to-day. Alexander Steen (high-ankle sprain) and Oskar Sundqvist (lower-body injury) are skating and getting closer to returning.
