Bruised Blues: Tarasenko can play, but Steen is out


Both Vladimir Tarasenko and Alexander Steen were game-time decisions for the St. Louis Blues against the San Jose Sharks on Thursday, with Tarasenko getting the green light while Steen can’t go.

Steen likely suffered his ailment thanks to a hit by Buffalo Sabres defenseman Josh Gorges (which prompted a memorable response by Robby Fabbri).

Ty Rattie and Robert Bortuzzo (who was just activated off of IR) are the only scratches for the Blues tonight.

Nail Yakupov gets a chance to cement his place in the lineup by drawing back in.
