ST. LOUIS - Jordan Kyrou is sick and didn't participate in the morning skate on Saturday, which means Jacob de la Rose will draw back into the lineup and is expected to play on the third line with Tyler Bozak and Alexander Steen on Saturday night when the Blues host the Dallas Stars (7 p.m., FSMW, 101 ESPN).

"I want to get everybody playing here. I don't want anybody sitting too long, and I probably let him sit too long," Blues Head Coach Craig Berube said of de la Rose, who has been out since Feb. 8 vs. Dallas. "I'm throwing him in tonight. (He is a) physical guy, smart player."

Sammy Blais also will be back in the lineup after sitting out one game as a healthy scratch. Berube will have Blais with Oskar Sundqvist and Ivan Barbashev.

"I like that line, they give us some good games," Berube said. "It's a hard line to play against and we'll need that tonight."

Jake Allen will start in goal. He is 2-0 against Dallas this season and has stopped 49 of the 51 shots he's faced from the Stars. He has a 1.00 goals-against average and a .961 save-percentage against Dallas.

The Blues will be seeking a seventh consecutive win on Saturday.
