The Knights will look to extend their home winning streak to four games and improve their overall record to 9-10-1 on the season, taking one step closer to .500. St. Louis handed the Knights a 5-3 loss at the beginning of this month and is coming off a 1-0 loss to Chicago.
The Blues will get Brayden Schenn back in the lineup tonight, though Ryan O’Reilly remains the top-line center, skating between Jaden Schwartz and Vladimir Tarasenko. O’Reilly recently snapped a 10-game point streak, though he still leads the Blues in scoring with eight goals and 21 points.
Marc-Andre Fleury has recorded back-to-back shutouts on home ice, stopping the last 63 shots he’s faced.
Here are the projected lineups for both clubs:
Marchessault — Karlsson — Smith
Pacioretty — Eakin — Tuch
Nosek — Carpenter — Hyka
Carrier — Bellemare — Reaves
Miller — McNabb
Theodore — Engelland
Merrill — Holden
Schwartz — O’Reilly — Tarasenko
Fabbri — Bozak — Schenn
Sanford — Thomas — Perron
Barbashev — Sundqvist — Blais
