Paul Stastny scored both a goal and an assist during Saturday's 5-3 loss to the Jets.

The veteran pivot now has points in four of his last five games, posting two goals and five points over that span. Over 46 games thus far this season Stastny has picked up 12 goals and 28 points.
Jan 21 - 7:27 PM

Kevin Shattenkirk picked up his 10th game of the season with at least two points during Saturday's 5-3 loss to the Jets.

It was his seventh game with exactly two points when he collected his 10th and 11th goals of the season. In fact, it's the third time over his last five games in which the talented blue liner has potted a pair of points. He has 32 points in 47 games thus far.
Jan 21 - 7:25 PM

Pheonix Copley made a valiant effort during the 5-3 loss to the Jets during his first career NHL start.

Copley turned away 24 of 29 shots, including four of seven on the penalty kill. He was under siege each period but held his own all things considered. Nevertheless, it was a game full of memories for sure.

Jay Bouwmeester appears to be dealing with an undisclosed ailment.

That's about as vaguely specific as it gets, unfortunately. But the Blues play just twice more before the All-Star break kicks in on Friday the 26th. They'll travel to Pittsburgh on Tuesday before finishing up in Minnesota on Thursday. We'll keep you posted on the veteran blue liner's progress, and consider him day-to-day for now.

Jay Bouwmeester, Nail Yakupov and Jake Allen will be scratched for Saturday's match with the Jets.

The long-time veteran defender has posted nine points with 38 hits and 54 blocks in 43 games this season, while averaging 22:20 of ice time per night. Yakupov meanwhile has but six points in 27 games with just 21 shots. Allen meanwhile didn't travel with the team.

It'll be a momentous occasion for Pheonix Copley on Saturday afternoon as he makes his first career NHL start.

The 25-year-old and North Pole, AK native has posted an 11-4-2 record with a 2.32 GAA and .920 save percentage with AHL Chicago this season. The undrafted netminder is in his third twirl through pro hockey, and is having a quality bounce-back season after his rookie campaign saw him post a 17-4-3 record with a 2.17 GAA and .925 SV%.
Jan 21 - 12:42 PM

The Blues will put Vladimir Tarasenko on a line with Patrik Berglund and Robby Fabbri against the Jets on Saturday.

In an effort to get the Russian sniper going, head coach Ken Hitchcock is getting Tarasenko away from the slumping Jori Lehtera. Tarasenko hasn't found the back of the net in six consecutive games.

Jake Allen will not travel with the Blues to Winnipeg even though he's healthy.

The Blues want to give Allen a chance to reset after he had to be pulled in his last three starts. St. Louis still regards Allen as its long-term starting goaltender though. Pheonix Copley was called up, so he'll join the Blues for Saturday's game. That being said, the Blues haven't made a decision as to who their starter will be.
Jan 20 - 2:15 PM

Pheonix Copley has been summoned by the St. Louis Blues.

It's possible that this is in response to a currently unidentified injury, but it wouldn't be surprising if the Blues just wanted another netminder in response to Jake Allen and Carter Hutton's struggles. While St. Louis has struggled between the pipes, Copley has posted a 2.32 GAA and .920 save percentage in 18 AHL games.

Carl Gunnarsson got back in the lineup on Thursday night.

He was absent for the last seven games, mostly due to a lower-body injury. Gunnarsson was paired with Kevin Shattenkirk in the contest, while Alex Pietrangelo was reunited with Jay Bouwmeester.

Jaden Schwartz picked up a goal and two assists in a 7-3 loss to Washington on Thursday.

He combined with Alexander Steen for six points in the contest. That was the only bright spot for the Blues in an embarrassing loss at home. Schwartz assisted on two goals by Steen in the third after the Capitals took a 7-1 lead. His 13th goal of the season made it 2-1 early in the second period, but then the Capitals stormed out in front.
Jan 20 - 10:10 AM

Jake Allen got the hook in Thursday's game against the Washington Capitals.

Allen was yanked at the 7:33 mark of the second period after he allowed a fourth goal on the 10th shot he faced. The Blues ended up losing the game 7-3, but backup goalie Carter Hutton allowed the last three goals. Allen has now been pulled in each of his last three starts. He has a 17-12-3 record with a 2.85 goals-against-average and a .897 save percentage in 2016-17. We don't recommend using him in standard fantasy leagues right now.
Jan 19 - 11:35 PM

Alex Steen scored a pair of goals and an assist in Thursday's 7-3 loss to the Washington Capitals.

Steen scored both his goals in the third period when the game was already out of reach. He also helped set up Jaden Schwartz's goal in the second frame. Steen finished the game with a plus-2 rating and three shots on goal in 16:21 of ice time. Steen has eight goals and 30 points in 40 games.
Jan 19 - 11:27 PM

Joel Edmundson and Nail Yakupov will be scratched against the Capitals on Thursday.

Edmundson has posted 10 points along with 37 PIMs, 40 blocks and 67 hits thus far through 33 games. Yakupov meanwhile has been relegated to a spare part's role, posting just six points in 27 games so far this season.
