ST. LOUIS - With a big 2-1 victory against the Western Conference-leading Minnesota Wild on Tuesday, the Blues are feeling pretty good about their game heading into tonight's 7 p.m. matchup against the Anaheim Ducks.
"It was a good team for us, a good test for us at a time when we needed it," Blues captain Alex Pietrangelo said of facing Minnesota. "It's something we need to build off of. Every game for us at this point is a big game, regardless of who we're playing."
With Tuesday's win, the Blues aren't expected to make any changes to the lineup tonight.
"I thought we played a strong game last game," Blues Head Coach Mike Yeo said. "We went in and obviously beat a good hockey team, so I want to see if we can bring that back home now."
Here is the Blues' projected lineup for their matchup with the Ducks:
Jaden Schwartz - Paul Stastny - Vladimir Tarasenko
Alexander Steen - Patrik Berglund - David Perron
Dmitrij Jaskin - Jori Lehtera - Magnus Paajarvi
Scottie Upshall - Kyle Brodziak - Ryan Reaves
Jay Bouwmeester - Alex Pietrangelo
Joel Edmundson - Colton Parayko
Carl Gunnarsson - Robert Bortuzzo
