NEW YORK - The Blues will make a few more lineup changes tonight when they meet the New York Rangers at 6 p.m. CT at Madison Square Garden (FSMW, FSGO, KMOX).
Blues Head Coach Mike Yeo hinted at lineup tweaks after Monday's 3-2 shootout win against the Islanders.
"This will be three games in less than four days, so we're going to have to find our energy quickly," he said. "We'll probably look at our lineup and see if we need to do anything to get some fresh legs in there."
Carter Hutton will start in goal, making his first appearance of the regular season. Hutton is 2-1-0 with a 1.63 goals-against average and a .945 save-percentage in his career against the Rangers.
In addition, Ivan Barbashev will replace Dmitrij Jaskin on the second line, Oskar Sundqvist will center Magnus Paajarvi and Tage Thompson, and Chris Thorburn returns to the fourth line place of Wade Megan
