NEW JERSEY - Vladimir Tarasenko will be in the lineup when the Blues meet the New Jersey Devils tonight at Prudential Center (6 p.m., FSMW, FSGO, KMOX).
Tarasenko left practice early Monday after aggravating an upper-body injury he sustained on Saturday vs. Toronto. After the team's morning skate in New Jersey, Blues Head Coach Mike Yeo said Tarasenko was good to go.
"I just needed him to give me a nod," Yeo said. "He did that... I told him we might have a place in the lineup for him."
Here is the rest of the projected lineup for tonight's game against the Devils based on Tuesday's morning skate:
Vladimir Sobotka - Paul Stastny - Alexander Steen
Jaden Schwartz - Brayden Schenn - Vladimir Tarasenko
Magnus Paajarvi - Oskar Sundqvist - Dmitrij Jaskin
Scottie Upshall - Kyle Brodziak - Chris Thorburn
Carl Gunnarsson - Alex Pietrangelo
Joel Edmundson - Colton Parayko
Vince Dunn - Robert Bortuzzo
