CALGARY - Expect a few changes to the lineup when the Blues meet the Calgary Flames tonight (8 p.m., FSMW, FSGO, KMOX) to begin a three-game road trip through Western Canada.
Blues Head Coach Mike Yeo said Vladimir Tarasenko will return to a line alongside Alexander Steen and Paul Stastny, and that Beau Bennett would return to the lineup and get a chance to play with Jaden Schwartz and Brayden Schenn.
"(Bennett) was doing a good job, but we took him out of the lineup to get (Chris) Thorburn back in," Yeo said after Monday's optional skate. "We're going to give him a little bit more responsibility and opportunity here tonight playing with some skilled players."
Below is the projected lineup for the game against the Flames:
Alexander Steen - Paul Stastny - Vladimir Tarasenko
Jaden Schwartz - Brayden Schenn - Beau Bennett
Vladimir Sobotka - Oskar Sundqvist - Dmitrij Jaskin
Scottie Upshall - Kyle Brodziak - Chris Thorburn
Carl Gunnarsson - Alex Pietrangelo
Joel Edmundson - Colton Parayko
Vince Dunn - Robert Bortuzzo
