ST. LOUIS - The St. Louis Blues held an extended practice on Tuesday morning at Centene Community Ice Center and therefore had an optional skate Wednesday before their meeting with the Minnesota Wild (7 p.m., NBCSN, 101 ESPN).
As a result, the projected lineup for Wednesday's game against the Wild is far from a lock.
Sammy Blais skated on the top line with Jaden Schwartz and Brayden Schenn on Tuesday and could play there tonight, although Blues Head Coach Craig Berube said during his pregame press conference with the media that Blais would be a game-time decision.
Alexander Steen, who left Sunday's game with a lower-body injury but did participate in Wednesday's optional practice, will also be a game-time decision.
Here is a projected lineup based on Tuesday's practice, although this lineup is certainly subject to change:
Schwartz - Schenn - Blais
Sanford - O'Reilly - Perron
Steen - Bozak - Thomas
MacEachern - Barbashev - Sundqvist
Parayko - Pietrangelo
Bouwmeester - Faulk
Dunn - Gunnarsson
Note: Blais and Steen are game-time decisions.
