Redden Won't play on Upcoming Trip...Plus Bishop on the Move?
Newly acquired D-man Wade Redden will not make his St. Louis Blues debut until Thursday January 24th at the earliest. The Blues have a plan in place which includes getting him consecutive days of practice before he plays. There’s a good chance he’s paired with Alex Pietrangelo when he enters the lineup.
The same lineup that defeated Detroit 6-0 Saturday will dress Monday in Nashville. This means Matt D’Agostini, Jamie Langenbrunner, and Jeff Woywitka will once again sit.
Ken Hitchcock says he was surprised his club was able to maintain the same level of energy from start to finish against the Red Wings. I don’t think anyone expected Detroit’s defense to be exposed the way it was.
Jaro Halak starts Monday in Nashville with Brian Elliott set to play Tuesday in Chicago.
Red Wings forward Darren Helm skated Sunday and appears close to returning from a back injury.
Ottawa may be looking to move goaltender Ben Bishop. Calgary could be an option although it remains premature to speculate. The Senators have three goalies on their roster along with Craig Anderson and Robin Lehner.
