The captain’s back and centering David Perron.
At this point in the season, after a… month? Is that right? Anyway, at this point in the season it feel like NHL teams have just accepted that the rosters will be a revolving door, and teams are going to just have to do the best that they can with who’s out for Covid reasons and who’s injured.
No Brayden Schenn? No Torey Krug? No Ville Husso? No Kyle Clifford? No Niko Mikkola? No problem – as long as no one else gets injured on this road trip.
Calle Rosen will be making his NHL debut tonight, so welcome new guy.
Here are tonight’s lines, from stlblues.com. Not bad for a team that’s short five players for this game.
Saad – O’Reilly – Perron
Kyrou – Thomas – Tarasenko
Kostin – Barbashev – Buchnevich
Neighbours – Bozak – Neal
Walman – Parayko
Scandella – Faulk
Rosen – Bortuzzo
