Blues' Thomas Greiss: Appears in relief
Greiss made 19 saves in relief Saturday after coming into the game in the second period. The Penguins scored once against him and they won, 6-2.
Greiss had won two consecutive starts, but had allowed eight goals in those two games. And 13 goals total in his three games before Saturday. The Blues were awful with Jordan Binnington in net, but better with Greiss. But the whole team has really been struggling of late. Neither goalie is a good option until they find better balance in their game.... See More ... See Less
Blues' Jordan Binnington: Pulled after four goals
Binnington allowed four goals on 17 shots Saturday before being replaced in the second period by Thomas Greiss. The Blues lost 6-2 to the Penguins.
Binnington stunk -- there's not really any other word for it. There was too much flopping and flailing. He's in a five-game losing streak where he has allowed 21 goals. Binnington will get his game back soon enough, but until then, you're better served letting him cool his proverbial jets on your bench. There's just too much risk otherwise.... See More ... See Less
Blues' Jordan Kyrou: Unavailable Saturday
Kyrou (illness) won't play Saturday versus the Penguins, Jim Thomas of The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Kyrou will sit out after he was a late scratch Saturday. Will Bitten was called up from AHL Springfield and will take his place in the lineup, while Vladimir Tarasenko and Josh Leivo should see a bump in ice time. Kyrou's next chance to play is Monday versus the Rangers.... See More ... See Less

Blues' Brayden Schenn: Misses practice Friday
Schenn (lower body) missed practice Friday and is questionable for Saturday's game in Pittsburgh, according to Lou Korac of NHL.com.

Blues' Pavel Buchnevich: Warming up after cold start
Buchnevich scored a goal and added an assist Thursday in a 6-4 loss to Carolina.
He put the Blues up 1-0 in the first with a one-timer on a cross-seam pass below the left circle while on the power play. Buchnevich has 12 points (six goals, six assists) over the past eight games, and he's put up points in seven of those eight. He had just six points in his first 10 games this season, and they all came in three contests. Buchevnich is back on track toward another near point-per-game season.... See More ... See Less
Blues' Jordan Binnington: Falls to Huricanes
Binnington stopped 30 of 34 shots in a 6-4 loss to the Hurricanes on Thursday.
Binnington was solid early, but the Canes scored three goals in a 64-second span to flip an 0-2 score into a 3-2 one before icing it with a pair of empty-netters. The loss was Binnington's fourth straight, and his record is now 9-9-0 with a 3.11 GAA and .899 save percentage. He does things in bunches -- that's either win or lose. He has winning streaks of three and six games, and losing streaks of five and now four.... See More ... See Less
Blues' Jordan Binnington: Expected to start Thursday
Binnington is expected to be in the home blue paint against Carolina on Thursday, Jim Thomas of The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Binnington has lost three straight games, giving up 13 goals on only 81 shots. He is 9-8-0 with a 3.05 GAA and a .900 save percentage as the last three contests have really hurt his peripherals.

Blues' Robert Thomas: Good to go Thursday
Thomas (lower body) says he is good to go Thursday against Carolina, according to Jim Thomas of The St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

Thomas (lower body) hopes to return to the Blues' lineup Thursday against Carolina, per Lou Korac of NHL.com.

He skated on the first line with Pavel Buchnevich and Vladimir Tarasenko. Thomas has four goals and 19 points in 21 contests this season. If he is able to play Thursday, Nathan Walker will likely be a healthy scratch after participating in the Blues' last two contests.... See More ... See Less

Blues' Josh Leivo: Offers helper in loss
Leivo picked up an assist and added six shots on goal in Monday's 4-1 loss to the Stars.
Leivo picked off a clearance from Stars goalie Scott Wedgewood and put the puck toward the net, where Brandon Saad tipped it in. This was Leivo's second assist in the last two games, and he's up to six helpers in 12 outings this season. The 29-year-old winger doesn't have a long track record of scoring success, but he's looked good with Saad and Ryan O'Reilly as linemates lately. Leivo has added 25 shots on net, 12 hits and a plus-3 rating this season, and he should be able to stick in the lineup if he keeps contributing.... See More ... See Less
