ST. LOUIS - The St. Louis Blues will open the Stanley Cup Playoffs with a completely healthy roster - something that's only happened once during the 2018-19 regular season (Jan. 5 vs. the Islanders).
Colton Parayko, who missed the final two games of the regular season, and Tyler Bozak, who was held out of the regular-season finale due to precautionary reasons, are both expected to be in the lineup for Wednesday's Game 1 against the Jets (7 p.m. CT, FSMW, Y98 FM).
"Everybody's ready to go and that's great," Berube said after practice Monday in St. Louis. "We need everybody. It's important that guys that aren't playing are staying ready. It looks like they're all in good shape and ready to go. That's important. We're going to need everybody."
Jordan Binnington was the first goalie off the ice Wednesday and is expected to start in goal, playing his first-ever game at Bell MTS Place in Winnipeg.
The rest of the projected lineup, based on Wednesday's morning skate in Winnipeg, is listed below.
Schenn - O'Reilly - Tarasenko
Schwartz - Sundqvist - Perron
Maroon - Bozak - Thomas
Sanford - Barbashev - Steen
Dunn - Pietrangelo
Bouwmeester - Parayko
Edmundson - Bortuzzo
