Schmaltz was sent down to the minors Thursday.

The Blues have a few days off until they are back in action against the Wild on Saturday, so don't be surprised to see Schmaltz called back up before Game 5. The blueliner played just 9:18 in Game 1 and hasn't been in the lineup since, so this move was likely designed to keep him game ready in case he's needed down the stretch.
