Sabres at Blues projected lines

Surprise! Husso’s in net.

NHL: JAN 09 Sabres at Blues

After Tuesday night’s win over the Flyers, Jordan Binnington being in net tonight against the Sabres shouldn’t’ve been a shock to see.

What is a little bit of a shock is the fact that no, he’s not in net tonight - head coach Craig Berube has decided to nurture the hot hand over encouraging a struggling goalie. While I’ve said before that the NHL is not a charity, starting Binnington tonight wouldn’t’ve been seen as a charity start for him.

Good to see that there is a plan - and apparently that plan, for right now, is Ville Husso.

Everything else is status quo for tonight; both Brandon Saad (illness) and Brayden Schenn (baby) are in against the Sabres despite missing yesterday’s practice.

Here’re tonight’s lines, from stlblues.com:

Saad - O’Reilly - Perron
