Blues dominate with healthy top nine
The St. Louis Blues have endured many injuries this season. Only one of their players, Troy Brouwer, played all 82 games. While healthy, the Blues were dominant. They're healthy now.

Blues top 9 injuries and PPG (points per game):
Tarasenko: December 2, December 31: Total games played-80/82 PPG=.925 points
Schwartz: 10/20-2/12: Total games played- 33/82 PPG=.66 points
Lehtera: 2/25-3/6: Total games played- 79/82 PPG=.43 points
Stastny: 10/18-11/23: Total games played- 64/82 PPG=.77 points
Fabbri: 10/10-10/27, 3/29-4/9: Total games played- 72/82 PPG=.51 points
Brouwer: Healthy all season. Total games played- 82/82 PPG=.48 points
Backes: 4/3-4/9 Total games played- 79/82 PPG=.57 points
Steen: 2/20-3/29 Total games played- 67/82 PPG=.78 points
Berglund: 10/10-01/02 Total games played: 42/82 PPG=.36 points
Finishing with 107 points—despite the injuries—is remarkable to say the least. When all three of our top lines were healthy at the beginning of a game, we were 6-0-0. Yeah, the players available tonight have only been healthy for six games out of 82 this season (not counting Berglund's injury) . During two of the six games, Steen (2/20) and Fabbri (3/29) were injured. If the Blues stay healthy during the playoffs, there's no telling what this group can accomplish. LGB.
