The St.Louis Blues (44-29-7) are down south for their final regular-season road game against the Carolina Hurricanes (35-31-14). Fan favorite Jori Lehtera will be sitting this game out on account of illness, and newly-reacquired forward Vladimir Sobotka will be a healthy scratch.
Yeo said it would be asking too much of Sobotka to jump in after not playing for a few weeks. They decided to wait until tomorrow.— Jeremy Rutherford (@jprutherford) April 8, 2017
Carter Hutton will be getting the start in net, and Jake will be getting the nod on the second half of the back-to-back against Colorado on Sunday. The Blues control their own playoff-opponent-destiny, and need only one point in the standings over these last two games to ensure a first round match-up against the Minnesota Wild.
