Jaden Schwartz isn't ready to return from an ankle yet, but he's hopeful to play during St. Louis' trip to Florida.

He won't be back on Tuesday when Winnipeg visits, but he could be in the lineup on Friday against the Panthers or Sunday versus Tampa Bay.
Feb 8 - 1:30 PM

Alex Pietrangelo has been placed on injured reserve with a knee injury.

He is scheduled to be re-evaluated in three weeks. Pietrangelo didn't practice on Monday after he left Saturday's game in the third period following a collision with Minnesota's Charlie Coyle.
Feb 8 - 12:29 PM

Jori Lehtera had a goal and an assist in Saturday's 4-1 win over the Minnesota Wild.

He hadn't registered a goal or a point in his last six contests. He has seven goals and 23 points in 55 games this season.
Feb 7 - 11:31 AM

Vladimir Tarasenko scored a goal in Saturday's win over the Minnesota Wild.

It was Tarasenko's first goal in five games and just his second in his last 12 contests. He's still put together an impressive season so far, but he's definitely been a lot more quiet of late. The 24-year-old has 26 goals and 47 points in 53 games this season.
Feb 7 - 11:27 AM

Paul Stastny was among four Blues with two points in their 4-1 win against the Wild on Saturday night.

Stastny, along with Jori Lehtera and Troy Brouwer, picked up a goal and an assist apiece. After going without a point in four games, Stastny has picked up points in back-to-back contests. He has six goals and 26 points on the year. Vladimir Tarasenko ended a five-game skid with a goal, while Robby Fabbri picked up two assists.

Brian Elliott blocked 38 shots in the Blues’ 4-1 win against the Wild on Saturday night.

A second-period goal from Matt Dumba is the lone blemish on his night. Elliott was exceptional in this one, just as he’s been since he’s taken over as the number one. He has a 2.13 GAA and .930 SV%. He is a strong option in fantasy leagues.
Feb 6 - 11:14 PM

Ryan Reaves and Robert Bortuzzo will be scratched against the Wild on Saturday.

Reaves, who hasn't played since Jan. 22nd, has put up a solid season with 25 PIMs and 131 hits in 42 games this season. While Bortuzzo, who has just five games to his name since Dec. 31st, has put up 42 PIMs and 49 hits in 23 games thus far. As we wind down the playoff push, it would seem neither have much of a role with the team.

Brian Elliott will face Minnesota on Saturday night.

Just once over his last six starts have more than two pucks beaten Elliott in a start, admittedly that was Thursday to San Jose. He's coming off a January where he posted a 5-2-3 record with a .937 save percentage and just 20 goals against. Elliott may not be a hot name, but he's getting the job done.
Feb 6 - 6:14 PM

Jake Allen (lower body) joined his teammates for Friday's practice as the session was wrapping up.

"I had to look twice when the guy came out on the ice at the end," coach Ken Hitchcock said. "I didn't even know he was coming out on the ice." Allen did some work with trainer Ray Barile. He still doesn't have a timetable for his return, but he appears to be going in the right direction.
Feb 6 - 11:37 AM

Jaden Schwartz (ankle) will miss Saturday's contest.

Schwartz continues to be close to returning, but we don't know exactly when he'll be back. He last played on Oct. 20.
Feb 5 - 5:57 PM

Jake Allen (lower body) has resumed skating.

He is taking to the ice for solo sessions, which is a little encouraging. Allen hasn't played since Jan. 8 due to a knee injury. Brian Elliott has been excellent during Allen's absence, so the Blues won't rush him back before he is 100 percent.
Feb 5 - 10:16 AM

Jori Lehtera has accounted for three goals and eight points in the past 19 games.

"I don't know," Lehtera said. "It's been a little bit harder than last year, but we've still got a lot of games left, I think. It's changing. ... I have to play more simple hockey and put the puck to the net, go there. That's where you start to score goals." He hasn't played that much with Vladimir Tarasenko this season and he has 21 points in 54 matches.
Feb 5 - 10:12 AM

Vladimir Tarasenko has scored one goal in his last 11 games.

He has generated only three points during that time. "I just think he has to get his energy back," coach Ken Hitchcock said. "I think we've leaned on him awful hard and he's come through every time." The Blues bench boss feels that Tarasenko is looking "fresher" and the goals will come back soon.
Feb 5 - 10:08 AM

Brian Elliott allowed three goals on 32 shots in Thursday night's 3-1 loss to the Sharks.

Elliott falls to 11-7-5 with a 2.17 goals against average and .927 save percentage. He has two losses in his past six decisions.
Feb 4 - 11:43 PM

Jay Bouwmeester doubled his goal total on Thursday night by scoring a grand total of one in the Blues' 3-1 loss to San Jose.

Bouwmeester now has two goals and 13 points through 50 games this season.
