BROOKYLN - Back-to-back games to start the week will give Blues Head Coach Mike Yeo an opportunity to experiment with a few lineup tweaks, and he will make two changes for today's noon CT game against the New York Islanders at Barclays Center (FSMW, FSGO, KMOX).
Ivan Barbashev will play in his first game of the regular season, replacing Oskar Sundqvist on the third line. In addition, Wade Megan will center the fourth line, replacing Chris Thorburn.
Jake Allen will remain between the pipes.
