"I haven’t had one all season anyway, so I thought that was a good time. I was hoping I didn’t forget how to fight, but I think I did OK."

Ryan Reaves suited up in Wednesday's game against Pittsburgh.

We've conditioned him. This is about as far as we can go with him. The rest is going to be in his court." The Blues have a couple of extra forwards so Reaves will have to battle for his playing time.
