Gunnarsson (lower body) registered a blocked shot in 11:52 during Friday's 2-1 win over the Sharks in Game 4 of the Western Conference finals. Gunnarsson was recently cleared from an injury that cost him the first three games of the series versus the Sharks, slotting into the lineup Friday in place of Vince Dunn (upper body). The veteran blueliner has yet to record a point in 10 playoff appearances. Gunnarson's 16 blocked shots represent his most notable contribution to the team at this point.
Gunnarsson (lower body) told reporters he was healthy and ready to play if called upon, Jim Thomas of The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports. Despite a clean bill of health, Gunnarsson figures to remain in the press box for Wednesday's Game 3 clash with San Jose. If coach Craig Berube does want to shake up the lineup, the Swedish blueliner would likely slot in for Robert Bortuzzo or Vince Dunn.
Gunnarsson (lower body) has been ruled out for Game 2 against San Jose on Monday, Jeremy Rutherford of The Athletic reports. Gunnarsson took part in the morning skate and is nearing a return, per Jim Thomas of The St. Louis Post-Dispatch, but will remain out of action Monday. Even once cleared to play, the blueliner is far from a lock to jump into the lineup and could still find himself watching from the press box in favor of Robert Bortuzzo.
Gunnarsson (lower body) won't be in the lineup for Saturday's Game 1 against the Sharks, Mike Zeisberger of NHL.com reports. Gunnarsson's injury isn't believed to be overly serious, but he'll have to wait for Monday's Game 2 for his next opportunity to rejoin the lineup. Robert Bortuzzo will fill in on the Blues' bottom pairing until Gunnarsson is given the green light to return.
Gunnarsson (lower body) is considered day-to-day and will attempt to skate Saturday, Jim Thomas of The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports. This news doesn't change Gunnarsson's status from questionable, but the fact that he will try to skate Saturday at least puts him in a position to potentially take part in the evening's contest. Confirmation on the blueliner's status should arrive prior to the opening faceoff.
