The St. Louis Blues are looking to win their second in-a-row at the Scottrade Center tonight as they take on the chippy Winnipeg Jets. However, they recently lost (another) key player.

In case you missed cousins hit on Alexander Pietrabfwoo, here it is:
So it was clearly a knee-on-knee hit, right? It really doesn't matter—the Blues have lost yet another player.
Pietrangelo averages just under 30 minutes each game—more than any other player on the team. He also leads the power play for the Blues: something we will most-likely see tonight. But he was placed on the IR after the hit on Saturday.
Petro will be reevaluated in three weeks. Robert Bortuzzo will slide off the healthy scratch list and into his spot.
In other news, Jaden Schwartz won't return tonight. Most of us are used to hearing this as he was rumored to return last Thursday. He is patiently waiting to get back on the ice, but fans are losing their patience as we continue to lose players to injuries.
