What would a Blues game be without a player sitting because of injury? Tonight, the latest victim is Jay Bouwmeester, who is listed as day to day with an upper body injury. The Blues recalled Petteri Lindbohm just in case, but to see him play tonight would be a surprise.
Another (potential) victim will be Canucks goaltender Jacob Markstrom. Hopefully he won't be an injury victim, but he stands a good chance of being a victim of the Blues' offense. The Canucks lost 3-2 in a shootout yesterday against the Predators, and Ryan Miller's been in net. Chances are good that he will get today off, and Markstrom's two career games against the Blues didn't end well for him.
