Jaden Schwartz was supposed to miss four weeks with an injured elbow. He's back tonight.
Also re-joining the Blues' roster after a brief absence is fourth-line center Kyle Brodziak. Who sits? To no one's surprise, one of the healthy scratches tonight is Ty Rattie. A little more surprisingly, the other scratch is Magnus Paajarvi - this leaves Dmitrij Jaskin to slot himself in on the third line:
Robby Fabbri - Paul Stastny - Nail Yakupov
Jaden Schwartz - Alexander Steen - Vladimir Tarasenko
David Perron - Patrik Berglund - Dmitrij Jaskin
Scottie Upshall - Kyle Brodziak - Ryan Reaves
Jay Bouwmeester - Alex Pietrangelo
Robert Bortuzzo - Kevin Shattenkirk
Joel Edmundson - Colton Parayko
So Yakupov's on the top line with Fabbri and Stastny? No one could ever be accused of not giving the kid a chance.
