I'd like to see Ryan Reaves get a shot at the Dallas Stars in today's 2:00 p.m. start. After dropping Game 1, the Blues need to grab a win before returning home for Game 3.

Hitchcock doesn't want Dallas to know what the lineup is, so if i had to guess...
Upshall-Brodziak-Reaves (for Ott)
Elliott (depends who DAL starts)
I think Reaves could help bring the physicality the Blues need to win this game. Upshall has been one of the best players in this postseason, and every time he's on the ice you can expect to see him throwing his body around. What a pick-up for the Blues. I'll have to dedicate another article to him later in the series.
After watching Game 1, it will be pretty hard for the Blues to be any worse today. They were asleep until the last five minutes of regulation. Once again, Brian Elliott had to keep them in it. The score could easily have been 6-1.
We'll see who shows up today. Hopefully it's us.
Let's. Go. Blues.
