BOSTON - After holding a full practice Monday at the Ice Zone at St. Louis Outlet Mall, the Blues opted for an optional practice this morning ahead of their 6 p.m. CT game in Boston.
Blues Head Coach Ken Hitchcock said he hadn't made his mind up whether Ty Rattie or Nail Yakupov would take the third line spot on the right side.
With that in mind, here is the projected lineup based on Monday's practice session:
Jaden Schwartz - Paul Stastny - David Perron
Robby Fabbri - Jori Lehtera - Vladimir Tarasenko
Dmitrij Jaskin - Patrik Berglund - Ty Rattie /Nail Yakupov
Scottie Upshall - Kyle Brodziak - Ryan Reaves
Jay Bouwmeester - Alex Pietrangelo
Carl Gunnarsson - Kevin Shattenkirk
Robert Bortuzzo - Colton Parayko
