The Blues face the Predators tonight in the first of a “three games in four days” period. Coming off a shootout win against Dallas, the Blues have won three of their last four games. The Predators, however, have won seven games in succession. The Blues will need to be at their best tonight and currently there are no changes in the Blues lineup apart from Chris Mason getting the nod over Ty Conklin.
There IS, however, speculation – namely from Andy Strickland that Eric Brewer could be doubtful for tonight’s game. Strickland is reporting that Brewer suffered an “upper body” injury during Wednesday’s fight against the Star’s Steve Ott. It’s likely that Darryl Sydor would step in if Brewer is unable to play tonight.
