Colton Parayko (personal) did not practice on Tuesday.

However, Parayko is expected to be in Chicago for Wednesday's game, so he should be expected to play.
Nov 13 - 2:29 PM

Brayden Schenn (upper body) will not play on Wednesday night against Chicago.

Schenn may be an option at some point during the Blues' road trip. He has an appointment on Tuesday afternoon to get a better determination on his status.

Vladimir Tarasenko's six-game point streak came to an end on Sunday.

Tarasenko had eight shot attempts, including five shots on target, in a 3-2 loss to Minnesota. He had four goals and four assists during his scoring spree. Tarasenko has 14 points in 15 matches this year.

Luke Opilka has decided to end his playing career.

Opilka is just 21-years-old, but unfortunately hip injuries have complicated things. He's had two major hip surgeries and he is still recovering from the second. "I want to thank the St. Louis Blues, my hometown team, for drafting me and giving me an opportunity to pursue my dream," said Opilka. "Unfortunately, my career ended sooner than I hoped, but I'm excited to continue my education and begin a new chapter in my life."

Oskar Sundqvist scored his third goal of the season in Sunday's 3-2 loss to Minnesota.

Sundqvist opened the scoring in the final minute of the first period. He has four points in seven outings this campaign.
Nov 12 - 11:22 AM

Chad Johnson made 15 saves on 18 shots in a 3-2 loss to Minnesota on Sunday.

Johnson was not busy and he didn't make the stops when he had to in this one. He only faced four shots in the third period and allowed the game-winning goal to Mikael Granlund.
Nov 11 - 5:58 PM

Alex Pietrangelo scored a goal in Sunday's 3-2 loss to Minnesota.

Pietrangelo was ice cold to start the year with one assist in his first nine outings, but he has six points in the last six games. That includes two goals and one assist during a three-game point streak.
Nov 11 - 5:55 PM

Ryan O'Reilly extended his point streak to 10 straight games on Sunday.

O'Reilly earned an assist in a 3-2 loss to Minnesota. He helped set up a goal by Alex Pietrangelo that tied the game at 2-2 in the second period. O'Reilly has eight goals and nine assists during his scoring spree.
Nov 11 - 5:52 PM

Brayden Schenn (upper body) is not expected to play on Sunday afternoon against Minnesota.

Schenn is not on one of the team's four lines during the pregame warmups. He is slated to sit for a three straight game as a result. The Blues called him doubtful to play even though he practiced on Saturday, so this shouldn't come as a surprise.
Nov 11 - 2:41 PM

Chad Johnson will be in the crease for a third straight game on Sunday when the Blues host Minnesota.

Johnson has stopped 71 of 72 shots in two victories during his last two starts. He stands a very good chance to steal more starts from Jake Allen if he continues to play like this.
Nov 11 - 1:48 PM

Brayden Schenn (upper body) probably won't be ready for Sunday's match against Minnesota.

"I would say that he's doubtful for tomorrow, but encouraging that he's getting closer," said coach Mike Yeo following Saturday's practice. "He looked good in practice today. I talked to him afterward. We just have to make sure we're smart." Schenn has already missed two games due to an upper-body injury.
Nov 11 - 11:27 AM

Chad Johnson may get the nod again on Sunday.

Coach Mike Yeo hasn't announced a starter yet, but it wouldn't be surprising if Johnson got the nod for a third straight game. He stopped 38 of 39 shots in a 4-1 win over Carolina on Tuesday and he turned aside all 33 shots he faced in a 4-0 victory over San Jose on Friday.
Nov 11 - 11:25 AM

Blues' backup netminder Chad Johnson has played so well that he may have started a goalie controversy in St. Louis.

Blues' starting goalie Jake Allen has been mediocre at best so far this season (3.99 GAA and .879 SP) and Johnson has been spectacular with a 1.83 GAA and a .941 SP. With coach Mike Yeo under pressure to deliver wins after the team invested so heavily in personnel this off-season, it would not surprise us if Johnson was given the reigns until he cools off.
Nov 10 - 2:14 PM

Robert Thomas played in his 10th career NHL game Friday night.

With that Thomas has surpassed the threshold that will allow the Blues to return him to his junior hockey team without burning a year of his entry-level contract. In other words barring something unforeseen, Thomas is likely to stay in St. Louis for the rest of the season. The rookie has four assists in those 10 games.
