A regulation or overtime win tonight over the visiting Vancouver Canucks will give the St. Louis Blues a spot in the playoffs for the fourth straight season.
And to help their chances, forward T.J. Oshie will return to the lineup after missing Saturday’s 4-2 loss to Columbus with the flu.
Alex Steen, however, is out after getting hurt versus the Jackets.
Even with just one win in their last five, the Blues still have a reasonable shot at catching Nashville and winning the Central Division. But per Sports Club Stats, their most likely first-round opponent is Chicago.
