ST. LOUIS - The Blues did not hold a morning skate before Saturday's 2 p.m. game against the Montreal Canadiens (FSMW, 101 ESPN), so the projected lineup for the game is based off Friday's practice lines at Centene Community Ice Center and the line rushes used in warm-ups on Saturday.
The forward lines are expected to remain the same, but changes are coming to all three defense pairings.
Colton Parayko was paired with Alex Pietrangelo, leaving Vince Dunn to play alongside Justin Faulk and Jay Bouwmeester paired with Robert Bortuzzo. Carl Gunnarsson is expected to miss the game with a lower-body injury he sustained Thursday vs. Vancouver.
Jake Allen is likely to start in goal, making his first start at home since Jan. 8.
Schenn - Schwartz - Tarasenko
Blais - O'Reilly - Perron
Fabbri - Bozak - Steen
Barbashev - Sundqvist - Thomas
Parayko - Pietrangelo
Dunn - Faulk
Bouwmeester - Bortuzzo
