>>Blues’ Upshall Out For Season With Lacerated Kidney
The Blues will play the rest of the way without forward Scottie Upshall. The 34-year-old is out for the season with a lacerated kidney. Upshall was hurt when he collided with Coyotes defenseman Luke Schenn during Saturday’s 6-0 loss to Arizona. Schenn is the brother of Blues center Brayden Schenn.
