Blues Lines Against Minnesota Wild Are Rough

Tarasenko sits tonight.

Brad Rempel-USA TODAY Sports

This is just bad.

Upshot: probably more than six minutes tonight for Ty Rattie... on a line with Ryan Reaves and Kyle Brodziak.

Good to see Colton Parayko in the line-up tonight, but holding Tarasenko out after being adamant that missing practice yesterday was a precaution is disappointing.

The top two lines are doable, but seeing Backes on the fourth line raises questions about his health considering he left Thursday night's game temporarily as well. Seeing Rattie on the line that he is on raises questions in general.

When life gives you lemons, you make lemonade. I'm not even sure if this counts as that.
