Patrik Berglund tweaked his knee on Thursday night against the Edmonton Oilers, and it was unclear if the St. Louis Blues forward would be able to lace up the skates against the Nashville Predators. It appears that Berglund will be able to play for the Blues this evening though, and he seems ready to go.

Lou Korac, the Blues’ correspondent for NHL.com, reported that Berglund would probably be in the lineup early today. As per his In The Slot blog:
When the Blues (45-14-7) face the Predators (29-28-10) at 7 p.m. today (FSN, KMOX 1120-AM), it appears that Patrik Berglund will be in the lineup.
Berglund, who injured his right knee in the third period against the Oilers when he got undercut byBoyd Gordon, left the game and did not return. He skated for 20 minutes Friday and was on the ice again for the morning skate today and deemed himself good to go.
That’s good news for a Blues team that will already be without Magnus Paajarvi.
