--G Jaroslav Halak did not practice Wednesday and is reportedly out for Thursday's Game 4 with an ankle injury. Blues coach Ken Hitchcock said Brian Elliott will start in goal.
"He's not going to play obviously (Thursday)," Blues coach Ken Hitchcock said after practice. "He skated yesterday. So we'll just keep him working back towards here sometime, but right now he's just not available. So Brian's the guy."
--The Blues' power play went three for four Monday -- with goals by Patrik Berglund, Alex Steen and Jason Arnott -- against the Sharks' 29th-ranked penalty-killing unit.
"We played great, and on the power play," Berglund said. "That's how we created some momentum today. It's really good that the pucks are bouncing our way on the power play. We've been struggling, so obviously we're coming out big with it right now."
QUOTE TO NOTE
"You don't expect the lineup to change when you win, but we're going into San Jose, their barn, and he wanted to get me back in there. I'm going to take it and run with it. I get a chance to go in there and redeem myself." -- RW Chris Stewart on Ken Hitchcock's decision to insert him into the lineup for Game 3 Monday.
