VANCOUVER - There was some doubt about whether Oskar Sundqvist would be able to play after blocking two big shots on the penalty kill in Thursday's 4-1 win against the Edmonton Oilers, so the Blues recalled Wade Megan from the AHL's Chicago Wolves for insurance.
Today, though, Sundqvist said he was good to go.
"Yesterday I had some doubts, but not today, especially after this morning skate," Sundqvist said. "I feel like I can go 100 percent."
Sundqvist will be in the lineup centering the third line again tonight, and if the opportunity presents itself to throw his body in front of the puck again, he said he will do it without hesitation.

"Sometimes it hurts, sometimes it doesn't," Sundqvist said of blocking shots. "Last game, both hurt."
The Blues will wrap up a three-game road trip through Western Canada tonight at Rogers Arena, where they will face off against the Vancouver Canucks (9 p.m. CT, FSMW, FSGO, KMOX).
Here is the projected lineup for tonight's game:
Jaden Schwartz - Brayden Schenn - Vladimir Tarasenko
Vladimir Sobotka - Paul Stastny - Alexander Steen
Magnus Paajarvi - Oskar Sundqvist - Dmitrij Jaskin
Scottie Upshall - Kyle Brodziak - Chris Thorburn
Joel Edmundson - Alex Pietrangelo
Carl Gunnarsson - Colton Parayko
Vince Dunn - Robert Bortuzzo
