Nail Yakupov and Ty Rattie will be scratched against the Islanders on Thursday.

Yak's attack has not made the trip westward from Edmonton, it seems. He has but two goals and five points in 13 games thus far with just 15 shots on net. He's played just once since Nov. 23rd.
Dec 8 - 6:33 PM

St. Louis has summoned Brad Hunt.

Hunt has nine goals and 29 points in 23 AHL contests in 2016-17. The 28-year-old has appeared in 21 NHL contests in his career.

Jake Allen will start Thursday's game against the New York Islanders.

That shouldn't come as a surprise. Allen is riding a career-high eight-game winning streak. He has recorded a 2.20 GAA and a .923 save percentage over that span.
Dec 7 - 6:42 PM

No Colton Parayko didn't score, but he did add another assist to his ledger during Tuesday's 3-2 overtime win past Montreal.

That gives him 14 helpers in 26 games this season. Certainly not the distribution hoped from him this season but the goals will come. He has 69 shots on net already.
Dec 7 - 2:35 AM

Jay Bouwmeester recorded his 300th career assist during Tuesday's 3-2 overtime victory over Montreal.

The veteran blueliner is now up to four helpers and five points this season. While he boasts 203 of his 381 career points back with Florida, Bouwmeester is creeping up on his Calgary numbers. He needs just nine more points to surpass the 79 he posted with them and he'd need to do it in the next 12 games to beat the 279 games needed. It probably won't happen, but it's fun to think about.
Dec 7 - 2:33 AM

Alexander Steen lifted his scoring streak to three games with an assist during Tuesday's 3-2 overtime win over Montreal.

Steen now has four helpers and five points during the streak. Impressive to say the least. The veteran forward is up to 12 helpers and 15 points in just 20 games this season as well.
Dec 7 - 2:30 AM

Paul Stastny picked up a pair of points during Tuesday's 3-2 overtime victory over Montreal.

Stastny now has four multi-point games this season, meaning he's been scoring in bunches as he has just seven goals and 15 points in 26 games this season. He had a goal and an assist versus Montreal.
Dec 7 - 2:29 AM

Jaden Schwartz gave the Blues something to cheer about during their 3-2 overtime win past Montreal.

Schwartz picked up his second two-goal game over his last five, including the overtime winner tonight. He also added an assist in the game. For the season he's up to 10 goals and 17 points in 22 games.
Dec 7 - 2:27 AM

Jake Allen hung in there as his offense stormed back from a late 2-0 deficit to beat Montreal 3-2 in overtime on Tuesday.

Allen stopped 28 of 30 shots, including both asked of him while on the kill. He's now won eight straight to bring his record to an astounding 13-3-3. His peripherals haven't been as impressive though with a .909 save percentage and a 2.44 GAA.
Dec 7 - 2:26 AM

Dmitrij Jaskin (illness) was able to play on Tuesday.

Jaskin missed Monday's practice, which put his status in doubt. He had a minus-one rating in 10:54 minutes of ice time as St. Louis earned a 3-2 overtime win over Montreal.
Dec 7 - 2:14 AM

Nail Yakupov will be a healthy scratch in Tuesday's game against Montreal.

Yakupov suited up in St. Louis' last game, but he played just nine minutes in that one. The 23-year-old hasn't been a very good fit with his new team. He has two goals and three assists in 17 games this season. Ty Rattie will also watch from the press box.

Dec 6 - 7:59 PM

Jake Allen will start Tuesday's contest against Montreal.

He has posted an outstanding 9-0-2 record at home this season to go with a 1.78 GAA and a .932 save percentage. Although, Allen has surrendered 10 goals in his last three outings.
Dec 6 - 5:43 PM

Robert Bortuzzo (lower body) has been placed on injured reserve.

The Blues officially activated Joel Edmundson on Tuesday and moved Bortuzzo to the team's injured list. Bortuzzo will be re-evaluated in six weeks.
Dec 6 - 11:45 AM

Dmitrij Jaskin missed Monday's practice due to an illness.

It remains to be seen if Jaskin will be able to play on Tuesday. He has a goal and six points in 23 games this season.
Dec 5 - 2:13 PM

Robert Bortuzzo sustained a lower-body injury on Saturday.

Although we don't know the specifics of Bortuzzo's issue, the Blues are listing him as week-to-week, so this is obviously more than a minor problem. The silver lining for St. Louis is that fellow blueliner Joel Edmundson (upper body) is ready to rejoin the lineup as Bortuzzo is forced out of it.
