ST. LOUIS - Blues Head Coach Ken Hitchcock will make several lineup changes tonight when the Blues meet the Washington Capitals at 7 p.m. at Scottrade Center (FSMW, KMOX).
Dmitrij Jaskin will get moved up to a Top 6 role alongside Jori Lehtera and Vladimir Tarasenko, which allows Scottie Upshall to draw back into the lineup after missing the last three games. Carl Gunnarsson will also return from a lower-body injury that has kept him out of the lineup since the Winter Classic.
Jake Allen will also be in goal.
Here is the projected lineup for tonight's game:
Jaden Schwartz - Paul Stastny - Alexander Steen
Dmitrij Jaskin - Jori Lehtera - Vladimir Tarasenko
Robby Fabbri - Patrik Berglund - David Perron
Scottie Upshall - Kyle Brodziak - Ryan Reaves
Jay Bouwmeester - Alex Pietrangelo
Carl Gunnarsson - Kevin Shattenkirk
Robert Bortuzzo - Colton Parayko
