It appears the St. Louis Blues will be heading to Edmonton to take part in the new playoff format set in place by the NHL in response to the COVID-19 shortened season. What will their lines look like?

The St. Louis Blues’ roster did not change very much from last season, so the predictions made in this article are a little bit easy to guess, but they are still worth discussing. Most fans know which players click and what lines the Chief likes to throw out there at the beginning of the game.

The one change from the regular season to now will be the addition of scoring winger Vladimir Tarasenko. His addition could push another forward down the line. Or, Craig Berube might throw a curveball and put Tarasenko somewhere unexpected.

We will dive into that in the coming pages.

Hopefully, this team can pull off a repeat this season and find a way to keep the band together for a couple of years in an attempt to move their status into a dynasty. Wishful thinking aside, 2020 is not over yet and it is time to make predictions on playoff lines.
