The Blues have confirmed that David Perron will not play tonight in Boston. Perron is suffering headaches following the hit by Thornton on Thursday.
This from the Blues Official Site:
Blues forward David Perron will not play Saturday at Boston.
Perron took a hit to the head from Sharks forward Joe Thornton in last Thursday's game at Scottrade Center. Perron did finish the game, tallying a goal in the second period.
Thornton received a two-game suspension for the hit.
Perron's absence will end his consecutive games played streak at 167.
No word on whether Perron will be in the lineup Sunday against the New York Rangers
On the upside, Nikitin will play his first game tonight in place of Barret Jackman...
