Parayko scored his 10th goal of the season in Monday's 2-1 loss to Florida. He also had three shots and two blocks. Parayko opened the scoring at 11:20 of the second period, finding the net for the fourth time in his last nine games. That put Parayko at the 10-goal mark for the second year in a row, and his 28 points in 63 games matches his point total from the entire 2018-19 season.
Parayko scored a power-play goal and added an even-strength assist in Tuesday's 3-1 win over the Rangers. After missing practice Monday due to an illness, Parayko looked 100 percent as he opened the scoring for the Blues early in the second period. The blueliner continues to surge, scoring seven goals and 14 points over the last 14 games.
Parayko (illness) took line rushes in warmups and is expected to play against the Rangers on Tuesday, Tom Timmermann of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports. Parayko missed Monday's practice and was deemed a game-time decision due to an illness, but the 6-foot-6 defenseman is good to go. He averaged 23:42 per game in February, and since the Blues acquired Marco Scandella, the blueliner has posted six points (two goals, four assists) and 24 shots on net over seven games.
Parayko (illness) will be a game-time decision for Tuesday's clash with the Rangers, Tom Timmermann of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports. Parayko was missing from practice Monday due to his illness and now is in doubt for Tuesday's tilt. If the blueliner is unable to suit up, Robert Bortuzzo figures to slot back into the lineup for just the second time in the Blues' previous five tilts. Parayko was outstanding in February, recording 12 points (six goals, six assists) over 14 games while averaging 23:42 per contest.
Parayko didn't practice Monday due to an illness, but head coach Craig Berube said he "should be fine [Tuesday]," Jeremy Rutherford of The Athletic reports. Parayko will join the team during its three-game road trip that starts Tuesday against the Rangers, and Berube is optimistic that the 26-year-old defenseman will be good to go. It'd be a big loss if Parayko can't go, as he averaged 23:42 per game in February and racked up 12 points over 14 contests.
