Jake Allen stopped 22 of 24 shots in Wednesday's 5-2 win over the Chicago Blackhawks.

Allen kept the 'Hawks off the scoreboard for the first 54-plus minutes of the game, but he allowed two power play goals in less than two minutes in the third frame. It's the fourth time in six games that Allen allows two goals or less in a game. He has a 4-2-0 record with a 2.80 goals-against-average and a .917 save percentage this season.

Jaden Schwartz scored a hat trick in Wednesday's 5-2 win over the Chicago Blackhawks.

Schwartz came into tonight's game with two goals in six games. The Blues forward opened the scoring at the 4:46 mark of the first period. He then made it 2-0 5:59 into the second, and he completed the hat trick with an empty-netter in the final minute of the third frame. Schwartz now has five goals and six assists in seven games this season. Vladimir Tarasenko and Kyle Brodziak also found the back of the net for the Blues.

Chris Thorburn is expected to be a healthy scratch on Wednesday night when the St. Louis Blues take on the Chicago Blackhawks.

Thorburn has no points in four games since signing a two-year, $1.8 million contract with the Blues. Thorburn fought Michael Haley of the Florida Panthers to a draw on last week, bringing up his penalty minute total to seven. His only real fantasy value is in leagues where penalty minutes are tallied. Oskar Sundqvist and Nate Prosser are also expected to join him in the press box.

Alexander Steen will start Wednesday's game on a line with Vladimir Tarasenko and Paul Stastny.

That could change as the game continues, but putting Steen on that line will keep Samuel Blais playing with Jaden Schwartz and Brayden Schenn, which is Blues coach Mike Yeo's preference. Steen is set to make his season debut after missing the start of the campaign with a broken hand.
Oct 18 - 1:02 PM

Jake Allen will probably start on Wednesday.

Allen was the first goaltender off the ice following the morning skate, which is usually a good indicator of who the starter will be. Allen has a 3-2-0 record, 2.96 GAA, and .917 save percentage in five starts this season.

Wade Megan has been placed on waivers by St. Louis

The Blues were making room for Alexander Steen, who was activated off the injured reserve list ahead of Wednesday's contest. Megan was a healthy scratch for the Blues' last three games so it's not surprising to see him be waived with the intent of sending him to the minors.

Alexander Steen (hand) has been taken off the injured reserve list.

Steen declared himself ready to return, so look for him to play on Wednesday. This will be Steen's first game of the campaign after suffering a broken hand during a preseason contest. He had 16 goals and 51 points in 76 contests last season.

Jaden Schwartz (illness) was back on the ice Tuesday.

Schwartz didn't skate Monday because of food poisoning. He should be fine to play on Wednesday night against Chicago.
Oct 18 - 11:05 AM

Alexander Steen (hand) practiced for a second straight day on Tuesday.

Steen might be back in the lineup Wednesday night, but that hasn't been decided yet. "He's getting close," coach Mike Yeo said Tuesday. "Good progress again today. We'll have a skate tomorrow morning and see where he's at. Not gonna rule him in, not gonna rule him out right now."
Oct 18 - 11:03 AM

Samuel Blais may get to play with Vladimir Tarasenko and Paul Stastny on Wednesday night.

"He could (go that way)," coach Mike Yeo said after Tuesday's practice. "Again, we'll see what happens with Steener here in the morning. But obviously we went with that group. And if Steener weren't to play, then that's the way that we would assemble our lines." Alexander Steen is close to returning from a broken hand and if he plays then Blais will skate alongside Jaden Schwartz and Brayden Schenn.
Oct 18 - 10:59 AM

Jaden Schwartz didn't take part in Monday's practice because of food poisoning.

The Blues host Chicago on Wednesday, so there is time for Schwartz to recover and not miss any game action. He has produced two goals and six assists in six games this season.
Oct 16 - 2:14 PM

Alexander Steen (hand) was on the ice for Monday's practice.

Coach Mike Yeo isn't sure if Steen will be available to play Wednesday night yet. The Blues still have to see how he feels before the contest and we'll keep you posted on Steen's status.
Oct 16 - 2:11 PM

Jay Bouwmeester (ankle) hasn't resumed skating yet.

Coach Mike Yeo said the veteran defenseman isn't behind schedule in his recovery, but it's still unclear when he will be ready to make his season debut.
Oct 16 - 2:06 PM

Jaden Schwartz registered an assist in Saturday's 2-1 loss to Tampa Bay.

Schwartz has recorded a point in five of the Blues' six games this season. He's got two goals and eight points already after finishing 2016-17 with 55 points in 78 contests.
Oct 15 - 6:27 AM

Jake Allen allowed two goals on 27 shots in Saturday's 2-1 loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Allen blanked the Bolts in the first period, but he gave up a power play goal to Tyler Johnson midway through the second frame. He also allowed a goal to Nikita Kucherov early in the third frame to go up 2-0. Allen won his first three games of the season, but he's dropped back-to-back decisions. He has a 3-2-0 record with a 2.96 goals-against-average and a .917 save percentage this season.
