With two games left in the regular season, the St. Louis Blues are looking good. They'll be tested as they take-on the Chicago Blackhawks, 7:30 p.m.

While the Blues are fine with telling us Steve Ott has colitis, they haven't given us a lineup for tonight's game. Hitch didn't tell media whether Robby Fabbri or Jay Bouwmeester were going to be playing, but they skated in today's morning practice. The Blues are still missing Ott, Backes, and Allen due to injury.
It looks like this will be a preview of Round 1 of the Stanley Cup playoffs, as the Blues are four points ahead of the Blackhawks. They need just one point in their next two games (Capitals on Saturday) in order to clinch home-ice advantage.
Duncan Keith is still serving his six-game suspension, so we won't see him tonight. It'll be chippy anyway.
Follow us on Twitter for live commentary during tonight's game: @bluesbuzzblog. We'll post the lineup on there once it's released. This is the most exciting time of year. Let's go Blues.
