Paajarvi will be back in the lineup tonight after sitting for the last three games. He has one assist in six games this season and is expected to skate with Alex Steen and Paul Stastny tonight vs. the Habs.
Allen stopped 22 of 25 shots in a win over the Predators last Thursday. He has been great when called upon this season, winning five of six starts with a 1.67 GAA and .933 SV%. He is a must-start when he gets the nod, but draws a tough matchup against a Montreal team who hold the best record in the NHL.
Elliott stopped 24 of 25 shots in a win over the Capitals on Saturday. He has won six of his last seven starts and sits at 7-3-1 with a 1.87 GAA and .930 SV% on the season. He draws a tough matchup tonight vs. a Bruins team who have won six of eight.
Oshie (concussion) returns to the lineup on Thursday.
Oshie has missed the last six games with a concussion but will be back in the lineup on Thursday vs. the Predators. Oshie will play on a line with David Backes and Patrik Berglund in his return. He has just one assist in eight games this season.
Allen will start in goal for the Blues on Thursday.
Allen gave up three goal on 27 shots in the Blues' 4-3 win over the Devils last Thursday. Allen has been nothing short of spectacular to start 2014-15---he is 4-1-0 with a 1.40 GAA and .944 SV%. Allen is as big of a goalie prospect as there is and deserves to be trusted at home vs. Nashville.
Oshie took part in the Blues morning skate, but he was never really expected to suit up tonight. But, it is good news to see him back on the ice again this morning as he continues to work his way back from a concussion. He could be back on Thursday vs. Nashville.
Elliott will start between the pipes for the Blues on Tuesday.
Elliott tuned aside 33 of 35 shots that the Predators threw at him in Saturday’s 2-1 loss. The loss snapped a four-game winning streak for Elliott, who will make his 10th start of the year on Tuesday. He sits at 5-3-1 on the year and should have no problem making it 6-3-1 with the last place Sabres visiting town.
Oshie (concussion) is skating in a no-contact sweater this morning.
This is the first time that Oshie has skated since suffering a concussion on October 28th. He has missed the last six games and is reportedly not very close to returning. Being back at practice is a good sign that he is recovering, but he needs to shed the no-contact jersey before a return is can be considered close.
Oshie practiced on Thursday but missed his fifth game in a row last night. He suffered his concussion in the same game as David Backes, but his appears to be much more serious, because the captain missed just one game. Oshie is not expected to return soon.
Stastny (shoulder) will return to the Blues lineup on Thursday.
Stastny has missed the last eight games with a shoulder injury, but will be back in the lineup tonight vs. the Devils. He will skate between Alex Steen and Joakim Lindstrom to start tonight. He has one goal and three assists in four games this season.
Elliott surrendered three goals on 39 shots in a win over the Rangers on Monday. He was given the last two games off with Jake Allen playing well, but he is back tonight, riding a four-game personal winning streak. Elliott has a 2.06 GAA and .920 SV% through eight starts and makes for a good fantasy start when he gets the nod.
Allen stopped all 26 shots that he faced in the Blues 1-0 win over the Devils on Tuesday. He has stopped all 50 of the shots that he has faced in his last two starts and should make for a good start tonight as he takes on the Devils again, this time in St. Louis.
