Jordan Schmaltz will be in the lineup on Tuesday versus Tampa Bay.

Schmaltz will be paired with Vince Dunn. The Blues won't have Alex Pietrangelo and Jay Bouwmeester in the fold due to injuries. Schmaltz may get a chance to see some power-play action on Tuesday night after he took some reps there during the morning skate.
Dec 12 - 1:08 PM

Jay Bouwmeester won't play Tuesday against Tampa Bay because of a nagging undisclosed injury.

Coach Mike Yeo said the ailment is not related to the ankle injury Bouwmeester had earlier this year. He has one goal and one assist in 10 games this season. The Blues were already getting ready to play without top defender Alex Pietragelo and now Bouwmeester is missing as well.

Jordan Schmaltz has been brought up by St. Louis.

Schmaltz will join a defense corps that just lost top blueliner Alex Pietrangelo to a lower-body injury. He has five goals and 19 points in 24 games with the AHL's San Antonio Rampage this season.
Dec 12 - 10:04 AM

Alex Pietrangelo (lower body) has been moved to injured reserve.

Pietrangelo didn't play Sunday after he was hurt on a blocked shot Saturday. It's unclear how long he will be sidelined for at this time. Pietrangelo logs heavy minutes and there's a significant hole in the lineup of the Blues without him. He also has seven goals and 23 points in 30 games this season.

Joel Edmundson earned a pair of helpers in a 3-2 overtime win versus Buffalo on Sunday.

Edmundson assisted on the first two goals of the game for the Blues. He also had four shots, two hits and two blocks in 25:49 of ice time. Edmundson has 12 points in 31 matches this season.
Dec 11 - 2:28 PM

Paul Stastny notched a goal and an assist in Sunday's 3-2 OT win over Buffalo.

Jake Allen allowed two goals on 24 shots on Sunday night, enough to earn a 3-2 overtime victory.

Dec 10 - 10:16 PM

Vladimir Tarasenko notched the game winning goal in overtime on Sunday night against Buffalo.

Tarasenko added an assist as well in his first night without the injured Jaden Schwartz on his line. Tarasenko now has 14 goals and 32 points in 31 games this season.
Dec 10 - 9:56 PM

Vladimir Sobotka is playing alongside Paul Stastny and Vladimir Tarasenko on Sunday night.

The Blues moved Dmitrij Jaskin up to a combination with Brayden Schenn and Alexander Steen because of an injury to Jaden Schwartz.
Dec 10 - 8:29 PM

Jake Allen is expected to start for St. Louis on Sunday.

This will be Allen's second game in as many days and his third start in the span of four days, so fatigue is a concern. However, he's been hot lately, allowing just one goal over his last two starts.
Dec 10 - 12:32 PM

Alex Pietrangelo was injured while blocking a shot on Saturday.

Pietrangelo will miss Sunday's game and then attempt to skate on Monday. He's a big part of the Blues' defense, so this injury is troubling on its own. However, it's particularly bad news for St. Louis after it was already revealed that Jaden Schwartz suffered a major ankle injury on Saturday that will sidelined him for a minimum of six weeks.
