'He's played well. He looks confident, looks aggressive in net and that's good,' Blues Head Coach Craig Berube said after the morning skate. 'He deserves another start.'
An injury to Robert Thomas in Thursday's 4-1 win against Montreal means Oskar Sundqvist will slide into the third line center spot, joining Robby Fabbri and Pat Maroon, who will return to the lineup Saturday.
'They've got to get into the offensive zone. That's the biggest thing with that line,' Berube said. ''Sunny' is good down low in his own end and can transport the puck up the ice, but they've got to play the game in the offensive zone. The three of them, Patty Maroon is strong on the puck down low, Sunny too, and 'Fabbs' is quick and gets into holes. They can have some good success, but they've got to get there.'
