The Blues are fortunate that they signed Charlie Lindgren this off season to a one year deal. He’s been lights out for the AHL’s Springfield Thunderbirds, going 8-1-1 with a 2.16 GAA. Lindgren didn’t get a lot of action Tuesday night against the Panthers, but he did get the win.
He’s going to have to face a Detroit team who just had a five game win streak spoiled by Nashville. The Red Wings may have a serious chance to sneak into the playoffs this year as their rebuild continues to develop, and a depleted Blues team should have them ready to bounce back.
From STLBlues.com, here’re tonight’s lines:
Saad - O’Reilly - Kyrou
Buchnevich - Barbashev - Tarasenko
Brown - Schenn - Sundqvist
Joshua - Walker
Mikkola - Parayko
Krug - Perunovich
Scandella - Bortuzzo
