News: Steen scored 26 seconds into the third overtime of Thursday's Game 1 against Chicago.
Impact: Steen's career year this season -- 33 goals and 62 points in 68 games -- was a big reason for the Blues' success, so it seems only natural that he'd be the one to end a long night at the Scottrade Center.
Thu. Apr 17, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Miller will get the nod for Thursday's Game 1 against the Blackhawks, NHL.com's Lou Korac reports.
Impact: Look for Miller to man the net for the duration of the Blues' postseason run, barring a continuance of his struggles late in the regular season. Miller finished 0-5 with a 3.83 GAA and .856 save percentage in his final five turns, tarnishing what had been a very productive run with the Blues up until that time.
Thu. Apr 17, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Aucoin was reassigned to AHL Chicago on Thursday, NHL.com's Lou Korac reports.
Impact: With the Blues getting many of their injured regulars back for the first game of their playoff series with the Blackhawks beginning Thursday, Aucoin was no longer needed with the parent club. He appeared in the final two games of the regular season for the Blues, going minus-3 with a lone shot on goal.
Thu. Apr 17, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Oshie (upper body) will not play in Thursday's Game 1 against the Blackhawks, Dan Rosen of NHL.com reports.
Impact: Coach Ken Hitchcock was gracious enough to rule Oshie out following morning skate, rather than waiting until pregame warmups before his unavailability became apparent. Fortunately, the Blues will get right wing Vladimir Tarasenko (broken hand) back into the lineup after he missed the last month, taking away some of the sting of Oshie's absence.
Thu. Apr 17, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Berglund (upper body) will not play in Game 1 of the Blues' first-round series against the Blackhawks, Dan Rosen of NHL.com reports.
Impact: Berglund hasn't been practicing in full over the last couple days, so he wasn't expected to return right away for Game 1. He can be viewed as day-to-day for the time being, but it wouldn't be overly shocking if he missed further games in the series.
Thu. Apr 17, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Jackman (undisclosed) looks like he'll be back in the lineup for Game 1 of the Blues' first-round series with the Blackhawks, Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Impact: Jackman sat out Sunday's regular season finale with an undisclosed injury, but it appears it was only a minor issue. He'll reclaim his usual spot on the second defensive pairing alongside Kevin Shattenkirk.
Thu. Apr 17, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Morrow (foot) will be in the lineup for Thursday's Game 1 against the Blackhawks, Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Impact: Coach Ken Hitchcock indicated that the players who saw regular line work at Thursday's morning skate would play in Game 1, meaning that Morrow will check in as the third-line left wing. He missed the last three games of the regular season to finish with 13 goals and 12 assists over 71 contests.
Thu. Apr 17, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Coach Ken Hitchcock acknowledged Tarasenko (hand) will play in Thursday's Game 1 against the Blackhawks, Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Impact: Tarasenko hasn't seen any game action since Mar. 15 after breaking his hand, but after a month-long layoff, the Blues will be counting on him to provide the scoring touch he showed prior to the injury. He'll slot in as the second-line right wing, alongside Jaden Schwartz and Vladimir Sobotka. Tarasenko had three goals and six assists in his last eight games before undergoing surgery to repair the broken hand.
Thu. Apr 17, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Coach Ken Hitchcock confirmed Sobotka (lower body) would play in Thursday's Game 1 against the Blackhawks, Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Impact: Hitchcock said the lines he used in morning skate would be the same he'd use for the game, so look for Sobotka to center the second line, with Jaden Schwartz and Vladimir Tarasenko flanking him.
Thu. Apr 17, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Coach Ken Hitchcock confirmed after morning skate that Backes (foot) would be in the lineup for Thursday's Game 1 vs. the Blackhawks, Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Impact: As expected, Backes will man the top line for the Blues upon completing the morning skate without incident. He missed the final three games of the regular season with the foot injury.
Thu. Apr 17, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Oshie (upper body) stayed on the ice for extra work with the expected healthy scratches at morning skate, a sign he likely won't be available for Thursday's Game 1 against Chicago, Dan Rosen of NHL.com reports.
Impact: Oshie missed the final two regular season games with the upper-body injury. The Blues enter the postseason with several key players banged up, but with top-line center David Backes looking like he'll slot back in as the top-line center, Oshie could be the team's most high-profile player bound for the press box.
Wed. Apr 16, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Tarasenko (hand) practiced with the team Wednesday, Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Impact: Tarasenko was a full participant in line rushes, as well as in the power-play drills, so it's looking like he could be in the lineup for Thursday's Game 1 against the Blackhawks. Keep an eye out for confirmation on his status after Thursday's morning skate.
Tue. Apr 15, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Morrow (foot) skated with the Blues on Tuesday, Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Impact: While there were fears that Morrow may have suffered a fractured foot in practice last week, he still hopes to be ready for the team's playoff opener against Chicago on Thursday. "I got a couple of days to get a little better," Morrow said Tuesday. So I've got to knock the rust off and hopefully be ready on Thursday."
Tue. Apr 15, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Tarasenko (hand), who had his cast removed on Monday, skated with the Blues on Tuesday, Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Impact: It's unclear when Tarasenko will be able to suit up in a game, but coach Ken Hitchcock did suggest Tuesday that he expects Tarasenko to be available at some point during the team's upcoming series against the Blackhawks, which starts Thursday.
Tue. Apr 15, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Oshie (upper body) skated on Tuesday, Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Impact: When asked Tuesday if he though he would be able to play in Thursday's playoff opener against Chicago, Oshie responded: "I don't know. You've got to see how I am tonight, how I am tomorrow morning. It really is a day-to-day thing. If I can, if medically it's OK and I'm not going to hurt myself worse, or hurt my team, I'll be in." More on Oshie's status as Thursday's Game 1 approaches.
Tue. Apr 15, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Sobotka (lower body) is expected to play in Thursday's Game 1 against the Blackhawks, Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Impact: Coach Ken Hitchcock isn't tipping his hand on the availability of several injured Blues skaters, but after resting his injury for the final two regular-season contests, it's believed Sobotka will be good to go for the playoffs. We'll likely find out his status for certain during Wednesday's session.
Tue. Apr 15, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Backes (foot) is expected to be back in the lineup for Game 1 of the Blues' series with the Blackhawks, Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Impact: Coach Ken Hitchcock declined to relay definitive word on Backes' status for the game, but he's generally expected to be good to go after resting his injury for the last week. The Blues' offense completely vanished at the tail end of the regular season, and they'll need a rejuvenated Backes to get linemates Alexander Steen and T.J. Oshie going again. Backes finished third on the team with 57 points during the regular season.
Tue. Apr 15, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Pietrangelo (undisclosed) is expected to be ready to play when the Blues kick off their first-round series with the Blackhawks on Thursday, Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Impact: Pietrangelo missed the Blues' final regular-season contest of the season, but it was believed to be for maintenance purposes more than for injury reasons. The defenseman, who finished fifth on the team in scoring this season with 51 points, took part in an optional skate Tuesday and appears in little danger of missing any action against the Blackhawks.
Tue. Apr 15, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Berglund (upper body) is not expected to play in Game 1 of the Blues' first-round series against the Blackhawks, Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Impact: Berglund was not on the ice during Tuesday's practice, and while the extent of his injury isn't fully known, it's thought to be serious enough to keep the center out for awhile. Coach Ken Hitchcock would only say that he expects all of his skaters to participate in at least one game of the series, but the ambiguity surrounding Berglund's situation probably makes him one to steer clear of in playoff pools.
Mon. Apr 14, 2014 | RotoWire
News: The Blues reassigned Rattie to AHL Chicago on Sunday.
Impact: Rattie failed to crack the score sheet in two games with the Blues this season, so he'll return to Chicago, where he racked up 29 goals and 17 assists in 69 games.
Apr 13, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Miller made 18 saves on 21 shots in a loss to the Red Wings on Sunday.
Impact: Miller has been on a bad stretch. He's lost five games in a row, letting in at least three goals in each contest. This is concerning heading into the playoffs, but not really concerning for next season.
Sun. Apr 13, 2014 | STATS
News: Berglund sat out Sunday's regular-season finale for the St. Louis Blues and will not play in the postseason opener Thursday night against Chicago.
Impact: Berglund has a shoulder injury.
Sun. Apr 13, 2014 | STATS
News: Pietrangelo has an undisclosed injury.
Impact: Pietrangelo's status is not known for the postseason.
Apr 13, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Sobotka (undisclosed) will miss Sunday's regular-season finale for the Blues.
Impact: Sobotka missed Friday's game with the injury and is out again for Sunday's contest. This could be concerning with regard to his availability for the beginning of the playoffs, but Sobotka being out of Sunday's game isn't surprising, especially because the game holds no meaning in the standings.
Apr 13, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Jackman will be one of eight Blues sitting out Sunday's regular-season finale.
Impact: Jackman played on Saturday, but won't go again on Sunday. It's unclear whether he reinjured himself during Saturday's game or it's just a day off following his return, but the question now becomes whether he will be available for the Blues' first playoff game.
Apr 13, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Roy (undisclosed) is back in the lineup for the Blues on Sunday.
Impact: Roy missed Friday's contest with an undisclosed injury, so the fact that he's returning Sunday is good news for a team that's sitting eight of its normal starters. The move indicates that he should be fine for the playoffs.
Apr 13, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Backes (foot) will miss Sunday's regular-season finale, Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Impact: Backes will join seven fellow teammates out of the lineup on Sunday. This game will be Backes' third straight out of the lineup, so the question becomes whether he'll be ready to go for the first game of the playoffs after a few more days of rest.
Apr 13, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Oshie will miss Sunday's regular-season finale, Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Impact: Oshie suffered an upper-body injury Thursday and missed Friday as well. The severity of his injury is unknown, but the Blues probably don't want to chance Oshie's health in a meaningless regular-season finale with the playoffs coming up. The question now is whether will be whether he'll be healthy enough for the start of the postseason.
Apr 13, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Pietrangelo is out of the lineup on Sunday, Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Impact: No reason was given for Pietrangelo's abesence from the lineup, so he's likely just receiving a day of rest on Sunday in anticipation of the Blues' playoff run.
Apr 13, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Berglund (upper body) will miss Sunday's regular-season finale, Jeremy Ruterford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Impact: Berglund will join seven others sitting out of Sunday's finale. The Blues have nothing significant to play for in the finale, but the question now becomes whether Berglund will be available for the Blues' first playoff contest.
Apr 13, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Morrow (foot) will sit out Sunday's regular-season finale, Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Impact: Considering the foot injury he suffered on Friday and the fact that he was seen in a walking boot, it's no surprise that Morrow will sit out the Blues' last regular-season game. The question now is whether Morrow will be healthy enough to start the Blues' first playoff game.
Fri. Apr 11, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Miller made 37 saves but took a 3-0 loss Friday against the Stars.
Impact: Miller might have had flashbacks to his Buffalo days in this one, as he was magnificent in limiting the Stars to three goals, only to watch his offense go AWOL. The solid outing can't obscure the fact that Miller has been less than stellar overall lately, dropping four straight outings, with Friday's effort marking his first time he's posted a save percentage above .900 during that stretch.
Fri. Apr 11, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Berglund left Friday's game against the Stars with an apparent upper-body injury, NHL.com's Lou Korac reports.
Impact: Berglund's injury appeared to be in the shoulder region. The Stars were playing a jayvee lineup to begin with due to injuries to several key players, so Berglund's ailment figures to further test the team's depth. The Blues are sputtering at precisely the wrong time of the season, and will need to get some of their key players like Berglund healthy with the playoffs approaching.
Fri. Apr 11, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Morrow (foot) was seen in a walking boot Friday, and he underwent some unspecified tests, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Impact: Morrow suffered the injury during Thursday's practice and was not able to suit up for games on Thursday or Friday. He hasn't been ruled out for Sunday's regular-season finale, but also doesn't seem likely to play.
Fri. Apr 11, 2014 | STATS
News: Morrow and T.J. Oshie participated in the St. Louis Blues' optional skate, a positive step for a franchise hit hard by injuries during a late slide in the regular season. Morrow is out with a foot injury.
Impact: Morrow figures to play in the opener.
Fri. Apr 11, 2014 | STATS
News: Sobotka is out with an undisclosed injury.
Impact: Sobotka's status is not known.
Fri. Apr 11, 2014 | STATS
News: Roy returned Sunday.
Impact: Roy was out with an undisclosed injury.
Fri. Apr 11, 2014 | STATS
News: The St. Louis Blues have ruled out forward T.J. Oshie for their playoff opener against the Chicago Blackhawks, but Vladimir Tarasenko is set to return after missing 15 games with a broken thumb.
Impact: Oshie is out with an upper-body injury and coach Ken Hitchcock provided no update after Wednesday's practice.
Fri. Apr 11, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Rattie was recalled from AHL Chicago on Friday, reports Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.
Impact: Rutherford further noted that Rattie is slated to play on the second line in his NHL debut Friday night. The No. 32 overall pick in 2011, Rattie -- a two-time 100-point man in the WHL -- has compiled an impressive 29 goals and 17 assists in 69 games during his rookie AHL campaign.
Fri. Apr 11, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Shattenkirk scored his 10th goal of the year Thursday, a power-play tally in a 4-2 loss to Minnesota.
Impact: He was particularly active in this one, tying a season high in shots with seven. This year marks Shattenkirk's first time to double-digit goals in his four-year career, and he now owns career highs in both goals and points (45). The scary thing for the Blues' Western Division foes is that the 25-year-old still hasn't reached his ceiling.
Fri. Apr 11, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Miller will start in goal Friday against the Stars.
Impact: Miller will look to end his three-game losing streak Friday in Dallas, but the Stars have had his number to this point. In three starts against the Stars this season, Miller has posted an 0-2-1 record, a 3.65 GAA and a .872 save percentage.
Fri. Apr 11, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Backes (foot) will not play in Friday's game against the Stars.
Impact: Backes will miss his second straight game Friday night, and it seems likely that he will sit out Sunday's regular season finale as well. Backes will have a few days to rest up before the Blues begin postseason play next week.
Fri. Apr 11, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Sobotka will not play Friday due to an unspecified injury, Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Impact: It's not clear how Sobotka picked up the injury, but he was able to play Thursday against the Wild, so it likely happened sometime during that game. It remains to be seen if the injury will cost Sobotka any further action beyond Friday's game.
Fri. Apr 11, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Roy will not play Friday due to an unspecified injury, Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Impact: The nature of Roy's injury is uncertain, but he was able to play in Thursday's game against the Wild, so it likely happened sometime during that contest. It remains to be seen if the injury will cost Roy any further action beyond Friday's game.
Fri. Apr 11, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Oshie (upper body) will not play Friday against the Stars.
Impact: The severity of the injury that knocked Oshie out of Thursday's game is unclear, but the setback will prevent him from playing Friday night. Oshie is considered day-to-day with the setback, so it seems unlikely that it will prevent him from being ready for the beginning of the playoffs.
Fri. Apr 11, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Morrow suffered a foot injury during Thursday's morning skate, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Impact: The extent of Morrow's injury is uncertain, but he felt soreness while trying to warm up for Thursday's game, and was seen wearing a boot Friday morning. It remains to be seen if the setback will prevent Morrow from playing in Sunday's season finale or any playoff games.
Fri. Apr 11, 2014 | RotoWire
News: The Blues recalled Aucoin from AHL Chicago on Friday, Jeremy Rutherford of The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Impact: Aucoin has not appeared in an NHL game this season, but the Blues needed to bring him up with David Backes and T.J. Oshie dealing with injuries. Aucoin tallied 11 goals and 29 assists in 60 games with Chicago this season.
Fri. Apr 11, 2014 | RotoWire
News: The Blues recalled Cracknell from AHL Chicago on Friday, Jeremy Rutherford of The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Impact: Cracknell appeared in 17 games with the Blues earlier this season and tallied two assists. He will provide some depth up front with David Backes and T.J. Oshie dealing with injuries.
Thu. Apr 10, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Steen assisted on both St. Louis goals in Thursday's loss to the Wild. He took six shots, collected two PIM and went minus-2.
Impact: Both helpers came on special teams -- one on the power play, one shorthanded. Despite going scoreless in his prior two games, Steen's managed nine points in his last seven contests.
Thu. Apr 10, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Schwartz scored a short-handed goal -- his third shortie of the year and 25th tally of the season -- in Thursday's win over the Wild.
Impact: He also tied his season high with seven shots on goal. Schwartz has slowed down recently -- he has just five points in his last 13 games -- but his body of work this season has been an impressive one.
Thu. Apr 10, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Miller allowed four goals on only 13 shots in Thursday's loss to Minnesota. He was yanked early in the third period after the Wild's fourth tally.
Impact: It's curious that Miller left the ice about two minutes after Kyle Brodziak's goal made it 4-2, but no injury news has been released. On April 1, Miller notched his first shutout since spring 2012; since then, he's allowed four goals in three consecutive games, turning his unsuspecting fantasy owners into April fools.
Thu. Apr 10, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Blues coach Ken Hitchock said Oshie (upper body) is day-to-day after exiting Thursday's game against the Wild with an apparent upper-body injury.
Impact: After taking an elbow to the face/head from Minnesota's Mike Rupp, Oshie was clearly shaken up and didn't return to the game, so his day-to-day status comes as good news to fantasy owners and Blues fans alike. With the team sliding and now in danger of falling down the Western Conference standings, the Blues won't necessarily take a cautious approach. That said, the team has just two regular-season games remaining, and the hit on Oshie didn't look good.
Thu. Apr 10, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Oshie, who exited Thursday's game against the Wild after taking a big hit, will not return to the contest.
Impact: Minnesota's Mike Rupp likely has a suspension coming, after he leveled Oshie with an elbow to the head during the second period of Thursday's game. The Blues are still fighting for the No. 1 seed in the Western Conference and to a lesser extent the President's Trophy, but Oshie doesn't seem like a particularly good bet to return before the end of the regular season, given that the team has just two more games remaining after Thursday's. No diagnosis was available during the contest, but news of a concussion would come as no surprise.
Thu. Apr 10, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Coach Ken Hitchcock said Backes (foot) could miss the Blues' final three games of the regular season, Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Impact: Backes declined to comment on his status after Thursday's morning skate, but he was spotted with a walking boot at the session. He's already been ruled out for Thursday's contest against the Wild. Although Backes' availability for the rest of the regular season remains in doubt, Hitchcock didn't seem overly concerned about his status for the postseason. That should make Backes still worthy of owning in playoff pools.
Wed. Apr 9, 2014 | STATS
News: Backes has a lower-body injury.
Impact: Backes' status for the playoffs is not known.
Wed. Apr 9, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Backes (foot) will not play Thursday against the Wild, Lou Korac of NHL.com reports.
Impact: Backes missed the second half of Tuesday's game after being hit in the foot with a puck, and sat out Wednesday's practice as well. He's still questionable for Friday's game against the Stars, but he won't be available Thursday.
Wed. Apr 9, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Miller will start Thursday against the Wild, Lou Korac of NHL.com reports.
Impact: Miller has had a rough stretch lately with his new team, giving up four goals in three of his last four starts, and losing all three times. He'll look to turn things around Thursday as he makes his 57th start of the season.
Wed. Apr 9, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Backes (foot) did not practice Wednesday, Lou Korac of NHL.com reports.
Impact: The Blues' captain took a puck off his skate during the second period of Tuesday's loss to the Capitals, and didn't return to the game. There's no update on his status yet, but there's a chance the team could shut him down to try and get him healthy for the playoffs even if the injury isn't that serious.
Wed. Apr 9, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Lapierre found the net for his ninth goal of the season in Tuesday's loss to the Capitals.
Impact: Lapierre's goal was the Blues' only tally of the game, which has become a familiar refrain with the offense going stagnant over the last few games. St. Louis typically only relies on Lapierre for his hitting acumen as the fourth-line center, with any offense he provides an added bonus.
Tue. Apr 8, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Miller allowed four goals on just 22 shots in Tuesday's loss to the Caps.
Impact: All of a sudden, after a sparkling start to his career with the Blues, Miller's hit the skids. He's given up four goals in three of his last four starts -- losing all three -- though at least he did put up a shutout in that span.
Tue. Apr 8, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Paajarvi will not dress Tuesday when the Blues host the Capitals at Scottrade Center, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports. He will be a healthy scratch for the second time in five games.
Impact: After registering just two shots and a minus-2 rating while averaging 11:15 in ice time over the last four games, Paajarvi will yet again take a seat while Alex Steen draws back in from injury. The 22-year-old Swede has disappointingly mustered just six goals, six assists and 56 shots in 52 games in his fourth NHL season -- his worst to date. That being the case, it's no surprise to see him banished to the press box as the Blues look to end a two-game skid and lock up the West's top seed going into the playoffs.
Tue. Apr 8, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Tarasenko (hand) was back on the ice for practice Monday, reports NHL.com's Lou Korac.
Impact: While this may seem a surprisingly quick return to practice, Tarasenko hasn't yet shed the cast on his hand, so he's not that close to returning. He's still certainly going to sit out the rest of the Blues' regular-season contests, and he'll miss some playoff action as well.
Tue. Apr 8, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Steen (upper body) will return to action Tuesday against the Capitals.
Impact: Steen, who last suited up on April 1, checks back into the Blues' lineup with 60 points (in 64 games), which ties him with T.J. Oshie for the team lead in that category.
Mon. Apr 7, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Steen (upper body) returned to practice Monday, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Impact: Steen told reporters that he still considers himself day-to-day, and that whenever he feels well enough to play again, he'll be back in the lineup. The Blues are 1-2 in the three games since Steen got injured, and will be glad to have him back, considering he's in the midst of a career year, with 33 goals and 27 assists in 64 games to date.
Mon. Apr 7, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Miller will start Tuesday's game against the Capitals, NHL.com's Lou Korac reports.
Impact: Miller has a 10-4-1 record and 2.15 GAA over 15 appearances with the Blues to date, though he's lost two of his last three starts, including a 4-0 decision to the Avs on Saturday.
Apr 6, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Elliott made 31 saves on 34 shots in a loss to the Blackhawks on Sunday.
Impact: This is Elliott's first loss in about a month, and his first time letting in more than two goals in about a month. Of course, it's also only his fifth appearance in that time, but he certainly remains one of the better backups in the league, if a rarely used one.
Apr 6, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Miller stopped 25 of 29 shots in Saturday's 4-0 loss to the Avalanche.
Impact: Miller held serve with opposing goalie Semyon Varlamov for one period, but the Avs turned the game into a blowout during a 10-minute span in the second, racing to a 3-0 lead. Miller owns a 10-4-1 record and 2.15 GAA over 15 appearances with the Blues.
Sat. Apr 5, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Elliott will start Sunday's game against the Blackhawks, NHL.com's Lou Korac reports.
Impact: Elliott gets the second game of a back-to-back, after Ryan Miller did the honors during Saturday's ugly loss to the Avs. Elliott has been excellent in limited playing time, as he's allowed just four goals over his last four starts and owns an 18-5-2 record.
Sat. Apr 5, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Steen (upper body) was ruled out for Sunday against the Blackhawks shortly after the conclusion of Saturday's game, Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Impact: Steen was already considered unlikely to play Sunday, and the Blues provided early confirmation. He's considered day-to-day, with the Blues scheduled to play six games (including Saturday's) in nine days to end the regular season.
Sat. Apr 5, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Leopold (ankle) is expected to play Saturday against Colorado but miss Sunday's game against Chicago, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Impact: Leopold returned to the lineup Thursday against the Sabres after missing the previous 18 games, skating 16:44 with just a single shot on goal and no points. It looks like he will play Saturday against the Avs, but he is unlikely to play in back-to-back games following a high ankle sprain, so expect him to sit out Sunday's game against the Blackhawks.
Sat. Apr 5, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Colaiacovo is expected to be a healthy scratch Saturday against Colorado, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Impact: With coach Ken Hitchcoack shuffling his blue line pairings this weekend, Colaiacovo will likely miss Saturday's game in favor of Barret Jackman, but could be back in Sunday for Jordan Leopold, who is coming back from a high ankle sprain and is not expected to play in back-to-back games. Colaiacovo has just four points in 20 games this season and should not be counted on for fantasy purposes at this point.
Fri. Apr 4, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Jackman (lower body) will play Saturday against the Avalanche.
Impact: Jackman was hoping to play Saturday, and it turns out he will get his wish. Jackman has racked up 81 PIM and has posted a plus-15 rating in 74 games with the Blues this season.

News: Steen (upper body) will not play Saturday, and is unlikely to play Sunday as well, NHL.com's Lou Korac reports.

Not surprisingly, Roy finished the contest with zero points in just 10:18 of ice time, and now has just a single assist in his last 15 games.
