Barret Jackman was the unlikely hero in St. Louis' 4-3 overtime win against Chicago on Saturday.

Jackman scored 5:50 minutes into the overtime period, to give St. Louis a 2-0 series lead. He's a solid defensive defenseman, but this was just his second playoff goal in 29 career contests. As it happens, both of his markers proved to be game winners.

Barret Jackman (lower body) will be available on Saturday.

Jackman is one of those players that's very helpful to his team, but not a factor in standard fantasy leagues. His offensive upside is minimal, but he'll help the Blues defensively.

Barret Jackman will sit out Thursday's match versus Buffalo because of a lower-body injury.

Barret Jackman's playing time has gone down this season.

Jackman is averaging just 17:35 minutes per contest, which would be a career-low for him if this trend continues. The Blues have a strong defense and Jay Bouwmeester and Alex Pietrangelo both eat up a lot of minutes. With that in mind, it would probably take an injury for Jackman's role to increase significantly.

Barret Jackman will pass Garry Unger and claim sole possession of fourth place on the St. Louis Blues all-times games list on Tuesday.

It will be Jackman's 663rd game, putting him behind just Brett Hull (744 games with St. Louis), Brian Sutter (779), and Bernie Federko (927). "It's awesome, especially with those names ahead," Jackman said. He later added, "Each time you hear something about me passing another guy, it's a real eye opener for myself."

The Blues' core has matured enough that general manager Doug Armstrong no longer feels the need to add any veteran mentors.

With Jamie Langenbrunner likely out and Scott Nichol and Andy McDonald gone, St. Louis is without its three oldest players. Barret Jackman at 32 would be the team's oldest player. "We’ve talked to our leadership group about this," Blues general manager Doug Armstrong said. "Those players were brought in to certainly play on the ice, but to give assistance off the ice. I think this group now is past the point of needing mentorship. What they’ve learned from those guys, they’ve learned. They have to put it in to place now."

A seemingly harmless shot from defenseman Barret Jackman with 51 seconds remaining in the third period gave the St. Louis Blues a 2-1 triumph over the visiting Los Angeles Kings Thursday night.

Jackman's goal, from just inside the Kings' blueline, also gave the Blues a 2-0 lead in their opening-round, best-of-seven series against last season's Stanley Cup champions. Jonathan Quick, the Kings' goaltender, appeared to have been screened by teammate Drew Doughty on the rather weak shot from Jackman. Quick wound up wearing goathorns for the second time this series. He was at fault for a giveaway in overtime in the first game, which the Blues won 2-1. The Kings actually opened the scoring Thursday on a Dustin Brown goal midway through the first period but St. Louis tied the game at 1-1 on Patrik Berglund's first goal of the series. Assists on Berglund's goal went to Alex Pietrangelo and David Perron's, their first assists of the playoffs. Jackman's goal was his first in the playoffs and the assists on his goal were credited to Chris Stewart and Vladimir Sobotka. It was also their first assists in the post-season.

Barret Jackman missed Thursday's game due to an ankle injury.

Jackman also missed the third period of Tuesday's contest due to the ailment. Blues coach Ken Hitchcock has made it clear that his priority is to make sure Jackman is ready for the start of the playoffs, so it wouldn't be shocking if the Blues give him as much time off as possible by keeping Jackman out of the season finale on Saturday.

Barret Jackman didn't play in the third period of Tuesday's win over Colorado after he blocked a shot just below his ankle.

Coach Ken Hitchcock said after the game that the injury is not serious, but Jackman won't play Thursday versus Calgary. "We'll give 'Jacks' the day off," Hitchcock said. "He's day to day, and for him, Game 1 (of the playoffs) is critical. Making sure he's ready for Game 1 is going to be important. I don't think he needs any more games to be ready for it. He's not a guy that needs to be constantly on the ice to play. Right now, our focus for him moves to Game 1 of the playoffs." Kris Russell will dress Thursday in his place.
