Martin Brodeur is excited to get a chance to practice with the St. Louis Blues.

"In talking with my agent Pat (Brisson), the Blues were one of the teams near the top of my list, that if I could pick a team to go to, it would be the Blues," Brodeur told So for them to reach out and just invite me to come and practice and see where it goes, I'm pretty excited about it." He also talked about getting the chance to play under coach Ken Hitchcock on "a solid team with good structure." He's hopeful that it will work out for him and he'll get a contract. Brodeur will start skating with the Blues on Friday on a tryout basis.

Mathieu Perreault (upper body) was on the ice for an optional skate on Thursday.

"I felt pretty good," said Perreault, who sat out Wednesday night. "I was able to take some shots and stuff so we’ll see how it feels tomorrow. It felt not bad today so hopefully tomorrow will be even better. I tried a few things... took faceoffs, shots, little battles along the boards and it felt not too bad. I'd like to play. If I feel like I can play then I'd like to be in the lineup." He might be ready to return on Friday.

Zdeno Chara (knee) will likely travel with the Bruins on the team's four-game road trip next week.

Edmonton will insert Oscar Klefbom into the lineup on Thursday night.

"Just some heaviness and some hardness," coach Dallas Eakins said while discussing his expectations from Klefbom. "Oscar competes very, very hard. We need him to keep his puck plays very simple, but he's able to close in our own zone, keep people away from our net and we just need a very simple game from Oscar." He was called up from the minors on Wednesday. Justin Schultz and Martin Marincin will serve as healthy scratches.
Nov 27 - 3:10 PM

Milan Michalek will get back into the lineup on Friday after he was a healthy scratch Tuesday.

Craig Anderson will be in goal for Friday's road game against Florida.

The move was expected because he has played very well against the Panthers in his career. The Senators will probably turn to Robin Lehner for Saturday's match against Tampa Bay. He stopped 38 of 40 shots in a 3-2 shootout win over the Lightning back on Oct. 11.
Nov 27 - 2:54 PM
