ST. LOUIS - Judging by the morning skate on Thursday, the St. Louis Blues appear to be starting Round 2 with the same lineup that finished Round 1.
That means David Perron stays on the top line with Ryan O'Reilly and Vladimir Tarasenko, and Brayden Schenn will center Jaden Schwartz and Oskar Sundqvist. Robby Fabbri remains on the fourth line with Ivan Barbashev and Alexander Steen.
Jordan Binnington is expected to start in goal.
The puck drops on Game 1 on Thursday night at 8:30 p.m. (NBCSN, KMOX).
Perron - O'Reilly - Tarasenko
