ST. LOUIS — Two key playmakers return as the St. Louis Blues activate Vladimir Tarasenko and Torey Krug from injured reserve.
Tarasenko has missed the Blues’ last 10 games with a hand injury, while Krug has missed the last 13 with a lower body injury.
Tarasenko and Krug return with four Blues games remaining before the All-Star break. St. Louis is currently five points from a playoff spot, with some contenders around them holding up to two games in their hands.
While the Blues are bringing back two Impact players, another ended up on injured reserve on Tuesday. Striker Pavel Buchnevich will miss time after undergoing minor surgery to treat an ankle infection that emerged earlier in the season. He will be re-evaluated at the All-Star break.
Captain Ryan O’Reilly remains sidelined with a broken foot sustained on New Year’s Eve. In the best case, he is not expected back until mid-February.
