LONG ISLAND, NY - Based on pregame warm-ups, it appears Mackenzie MacEachern will make his regular season debut this afternoon when the Blues wrap up a four-game road trip against the New York Islanders at Nassau Coliseum (Noon CT, FSMW, 101 ESPN).
MONTREAL - Sammy Blais will have two busloads of friends and family making the three-hour trip to Montreal from his hometown of Montmagny, Quebec on Saturday afternoon.
That group will arrive just in time to see Blais get a promotion to one of the Blues' power-play units when they meet the Canadiens at Bell Centre (6 p.m. CT, FSMW, 101 ESPN) in search of a fourth consecutive victory.
OTTAWA - Jake Allen will make his first start of the regular season on Thursday night in Ottawa (6:30 p.m. CT, FSMW, 101 ESPN).
It will mark Allen's first start since April 3 of last season - a 35-save effort against the Chicago Blackhawks at United Center. He last played 24 minutes, 28 seconds in relief of Jordan Binnington in Game 3 of the Stanley Cup Final.
