Barring any last-minute setbacks between now and puck drop, Oskar Sundqvist will be centering the third line between Zach Sanford and Sammy Blais. Dakota Joshua, who has impressed since being called up, will be centering the third line. Nathan Walker? He’s the odd man out.
Not playing tonight? Alex Pietrangelo. Also not playing? Robin Lehner is in the AHL on a conditioning stint. February’s AHL goalie of the month, Logan Thompson, will more than likely be on the bench tonight as backup. The Silver Knights goalie is having himself a season, with a 1.72 GAA and a .946 save percentage. He might just be a tough nut for the Blues’ offense to crack if he sees time tonight. There was speculation that he would be the starter, but thankfully Marc-Andre Fleury’s COVID-19 test was a false positive.

Don’t look for the Blues to go after Mark Stone for the hit that’s knocked Tyler Bozak out of the lineup. Revenge is a dish best served cold anyway - just go out there and win.
