After an embarrassing showing on Saturday night in Columbus, the Blues will make some tweaks to their forward lines and might swap recently-recovered Robert Bortuzzo for Petteri Lindbohm on defense, but overall, the lineup changes shouldn’t be too drastic on Tuesday. Though Alexander Steen has been less effective than usual in his own zone this season, the newly-formed line of Jaden Schwartz, Paul Stastny, and Steen should be the closest thing to a true number one line–at least in terms of defending the opposing team’s top line–that the Blues have had all season. It should be interesting to see how that line performs Tuesday.
Here’s what the Blues’ lineup could look like against Buffalo:
Petteri Lindbohm–Colton Parayko
Update, 10:56 AM: It looks like Bortuzzo will still need another game to get ready, so Petteri Lindbohm is expected to remain in the lineup against Buffalo.
