The Islanders complete a back-to-back by traveling to St. Louis, where they will hope to rebound from last night's goof-off display at home to the Bruins.

Would expect Thomas Greiss to start after Jaroslav Halak played last night. Heard threats about Steve Bernier and/or Brian Strait stepping in after the whole lineup stunk Friday. But we'll see.

The Blues are definitely without the injured Paul Stastny, Jaden Schwartz and Patrick Berglund, while Kevin Shattenkirk, and Robby Fabbri have been out with injuries too.

Scott Gomez and Scottie Upshall are Blues, in case you didn't hear that on the memo wire. With all of these injuries, both are currently regulars instead of Berniers.
