Good news for the Blues, and bad news for everyone else: Andy McDonald is coming back Tuesday, getting the team one more step toward being healthy.
The Blues have, in case you haven't noticed, been down a few guys recently. Alexander Steen, Andy McDonald, Vladimir Tarasenko, and now T.J. Oshie have all gone down with some injury or another. Steen returned in the Blues' shutout of the Phoenix Coyotes Thursday night and netted a goal and two assists. Tarasenko came back Saturday night and assisted on Kris Russell's goal. Tomorrow night it's McDonald's turn.
According to Lou Korac of NHL.com, the Blues' very own waterbug will be back after missing 10 games with a knee injury.
Andy McDonald: "The plan is to play tomorrow." #stlblues— Lou Korac (@lkorac10) March 18, 2013
Good. Let's stick with that plan. If you need evidence that Andy Mac will be in tomorrow night, the Blues sent forward Adam Cracknell down to Peoria earlier today.
McDonald has 11 points (three goals, eight assists) in 18 games played this season.
