Martin Brodeur will practice with the St. Louis Blues on a tryout.

He will join the team on Friday and practice with them through early next week. The Blues made the move after losing Brian Elliott to injury on Tuesday night.
Nov 26 - 5:08 PM

Coach Ken Hitchcock said Brian Elliott is "week-to-week" with a lower-body injury.

"We'll kind of address it every Sunday and see how he is," Hitchcock said. "That's about as close as I can give you right now. He's had this type of injury before and has recovered quickly and nicely so we're hoping for the former but we don't want to say it's five or six days and then it's 14 so we'll leave it at that." He also hinted that goalies need their knees, so that's likely what he injured on Tuesday night.

The Blues didn't provide a timetable for Brian Elliott (lower body) on Wednesday.

The club just said that Elliott "will be sidelined with a lower-body injury." Elliott left Tuesday's game versus Ottawa in the second period. Jake Allen will tend to the team's crease in his place.

Jordan Binnington is up with the Blues on emergency recall.

In nine games with the AHL's Chicago Wolves, he has posted a 6-2-1 record to go with a 1.89 goals-against average and a .925 save percentage. Brian Elliott suffered a lower-body injury on Tuesday, so Binnington will back up Jake Allen.

Alexander Steen registered his fifth goal of the season for the Blues in Tuesday's 3-2 shootout loss to Ottawa.

Steen has now recorded points in three straight contests to give him 15 in 22 outings on the year. The secondary scoring he provides is crucial for the Blues and will go a long way in determining their success this season. Ian Cole also scored his first of the campaign in the loss.

Jake Allen suffered a loss after allowing two goals on 17 shots in Tuesday's 3-2 shutout defeat at the hands of the Senators.

Allen entered the game midway through the second period after starter Brian Elliott suffered a lower body injury and was handed a 2-0 lead that he and his teammates ultimately coughed up. The loss drops his record to 6-2-1 on the year with a 2.12 GAA and a .920 save percentage.

Blues goaltender Brian Elliott left Tuesday's game against the Senators due to a lower-body injury and will not return.

It's not yet known how severe the injury is, but an extended absence for Elliott could be a big blow for the Blues. He has been replaced in this game by Jake Allen, who is nursing the 2-0 lead he inherited.
Nov 25 - 10:13 PM

Magnus Pajarvi and Chris Porter will sit against the Senators on Tuesday night.

With just 15 games and one point, an assist by Paajarvi, through the Blues' first 21 games, it's tough to figure with much certainty when either will continue to see action. Which in Paajarvi's case, is unfortunate as his talents are clear.
Nov 25 - 7:27 PM

Barret Jackman will take sole possession of third place on the Blues' all-time games played list when he participated in Tuesday's game.

Jackman is currently tied with Brett Hull at 744 games played. Brian Sutter occupies second place with 779 contests. Jackman, 33, has spent his entire career within the Blues' organization.
Nov 25 - 6:32 PM

Jay Bouwmeester (lower body) will miss Tuesday's game against Ottawa.

Bouwmeester saw his streak of 737 consecutive games come to an end on Sunday. He shouldn't be sidelined much longer though as Blues coach Ken Hitchcock said that he would be playing Tuesday if this was a postseason contest.
Nov 25 - 12:37 PM

Brian Elliott will play between the pipes on Tuesday.

Elliott has a 1.90 GAA and .927 save percentage in 13 games in 2014-15. He has allowed two or fewer goals in each of his last five contests.
Nov 25 - 12:25 PM

Winnipeg-native Ryan Reaves scored the game-winning goal against the Jets on Sunday.

He got a standing ovation from his father, Willard, who was in attendance. "It was great to see him score against his home province," Willard Reaves said. "I jumped up and cheered and everybody was dead silent, looking at me. I just said, 'Hey, you guys score, you cheer. My boy scores, I cheer.'" It was his third goal of the season and his first since Oct. 30.
Nov 24 - 1:18 PM

Chris Butler made his debut with the St. Louis Blues on Sunday.

In doing so, he became just the second St. Louis-born player to play for the Blues, with Cam Janssen being the first. Butler registered one shot, two penalty minutes and a block in 13:24 of ice time in a 4-2 win over Winnipeg.
Nov 24 - 1:11 PM

Jake Allen stopped 28 of 30 shots in St. Louis' 4-2 win over Winnipeg on Sunday.

Allen has now won five of his last six starts. The 24-year-old has been solid this season, but his upside is limited because he and Brian Elliot share the workload in goal for the Blues. If Elliot ever went down to injury, Allen's fantasy value would spike significantly. Allen is now 6-2-0 this season.
Nov 23 - 7:32 PM

Alexander Steen registered two assists in St. Louis' 4-2 win over the Winnipeg Jets.

The 30-year-old picked up assists on Jaden Schwartz and David Backes' power play goals. Steen has come back to earth after a terrific offensive season last year. He now has four goals and 14 points in 21 games this season. He was named the game's first star. Ryan Reaves and Paul Stastny also scored for the Blues.
