--LW Andy McDonald netted his fifth goal of the playoffs in Monday's 5-2 loss to the Kings. McDonald scored an even-strength goal 18 seconds into the second period, but the Blues' were out of reach at that point, trailing 4-1. He now had five goals and four assists in seven playoff games.
--G Brian Elliott allowed five goals on 21 shots in Monday's loss to the Kings. Elliott didn't have much help defensively, but he will have to regroup because there is no help in sight. The club officially ruled out Jaroslav Halak for the rest of the conference semifinals with a foot injury.
--RW Matt D'Agostini was back in the lineup Monday, and he responded with one of the team's two goals. D'Agostini, who had nine goals in the regular season, pulled the Blues to within 5-2 in the third period. D'Agostini replaced Chris Stewart in the lineup and could remain there for Game 3.
--G Jaroslav Halak (ankle), out.
