Butler drew into the Blues' lineup on two occasions during his most recent stay with the big club, totaling 15:29 of ice time in those contests.

      Analysis: With Jay Bouwmeester a late scratch due to an illness, Chris Butler made just his third appearance in a little over two weeks.

      Analysis: Despite not seeing any kind of increase in ice time over these two games -- he still skated only 13:30 on Tuesday, a miserably low amount for a blueliner -- Chris Butler has provided an offensive spark for the Blues. However, with a career high of 21 points -- and just four this year -- he's not likely to keep it up.
