Should he stay or should he go?
Mike Weaver and Darryl Sydor will be healthy scratches tonight – which means that Alex Pietrangelo gets his ninth game. This is now decision time for the Blues – so expect to hear something very shortly. Expectations are that Pietrangelo stays with the Blues. Tonight’s lines are:
David Perron-Andy McDonald-Brad Boyes
Paul Kariya-T.J. Oshie-David Backes
Patrik Berglund-Jay McClement-B.J. Crombeen
Brad Winchester-Keith Tkachuk-Cam Janssen
Barret Jackman-Roman Polak
Carlo Colaiacovo-Erik Johnson
Eric Brewer-Alex Pietrangelo
Paul Kariya is back on a line with Oshie and Backes – he’s worked very hard whilst on the “stopper” line and let’s hope it pays off. Patrik Berglund takes Kariya’s place on the stopper line – and it looks like this is the way to try and get him to relax a bit. The pressure of being part of the top six is off – and he’ll be matched up against the oppositions top line. This should give Berglund a bit more space up front – let’s see if he can take advantage.
Chris Mason once again gets the start in goal.
