The Blues look to extend their winning streak tonight when they take on the Minnesota Wild at the Scottrade Center. The Blues are coming off a 4-3 win over the Lightning last night. Tonight, the puck drops at 7:00. Tickets are still available. As of this moment, the game is scheduled to be broadcast on KMOX, but the Cardinal game is in a rain delay, so there is a possibility that the Blues would be booted by baseball. If the ball game ends on time, you can also stream the Blues game here (link opens a media player).
Continue reading to see tonight’s lineup, including the veterans seeing their first action of the preseason.
Andy McDonald, Alex Steen, T.J. Oshie and Jamie Langenbrunner are scheduled to step on the ice tonight. As Jeremy Rutherford reports, McDonald is ready to get back at it. He will wear an A on his sweater as one of the new official leaders for the Blues. McDonald may get time on a line with Philip McRae.
Jaroslav Halak is expected to see his first puck in net. Brian Elliot and Ben Bishop have stopped the first two victories. While it could change, the Blues preview has Brian Elliot listed in the lineup, meaning he should be the backup.
Scratches had not been announced as of this writing, but Andy Strickland reported on Twitter that Matt D’Agostini will miss the game a minor groin injury.
In other Blues news, the team did make a couple of roster moves: Cody Beach, Brock Beukeboom and Jordan Binnington have been returned to their junior teams.
And finally, if the Blues isn’t enough action for you, there are 4 other games tonight, including Chicago and Pittsburgh live on NHL Network.
