DALLAS - The Blues haven't played since Wednesday, and after today's 1 p.m. matchup with the Dallas Stars (FSMW, FSGO, Y98), they won't play again until Thursday in San Jose.
As a result, Blues Head Coach Mike Yeo said he won't hesitate to give more ice time to guys who are on top of their games.
"Whoever is going will (continue to) go," Yeo said. "We can use some guys today."
Robert Bortuzzo will return to the lineup after missing five games with a knee injury. Bortuzzo returns to a pairing with Vince Dunn.
In addition, Nikita Soshnikov (sick) did not make the trip. Patrik Berglund will return after missing one game as a healthy scratch.
Below is the projected lineup for Saturday's game in Dallas:
Alexander Steen - Ivan Barbashev - Vladimir Tarasenko
Jaden Schwartz - Brayden Schenn - Dmitrij Jaskin
Patrik Berglund - Vladimir Sobotka - Tage Thompson
Scottie Upshall - Kyle Brodziak - Chris Thorburn
Jay Bouwmeester - Alex Pietrangelo
Carl Gunnarsson - Colton Parayko
Vince Dunn - Robert Bortuzzo
