ST. LOUIS - The St. Louis Blues will be seeking a fourth consecutive win tonight when they host the New York Islanders at 7 p.m. at Scottrade Center (FSMW, KMOX).
WIth a win tonight - and a Nashville loss to the San Jose Sharks this afternoon - the Blues would find themselves tied with the Predators for third in the Central Division.
Blues Head Coach Mike Yeo said Carter Hutton will start in goal and Ivan Barbashev will take Jori Lehtera's spot in the lineup. Colton Parayko, who didn't play in the third period Friday with an undisclosed minor injury, is questionable for tonight.
Here is the projected lineup for the game against the Islanders:
Jaden Schwartz - Paul Stastny - Vladimir Tarasenko
Alexander Steen - Patrik Berglund - David Perron
Dmitrij Jaskin - Ivan Barbashev - Magnus Paajarvi
Scottie Upshall - Kyle Brodziak - Ryan Reaves
Jay Bouwmeester - Alex Pietrangelo
Joel Edmundson - Colton Parayko / Jordan Schmaltz
Carl Gunnarsson - Robert Bortuzzo
