Blues' morning skate

Lee Stempniak might make his return from injury tonight after missing the past four Blues' games. If so, here are what the top three lines will likely look like ...


Jay McClement will center a fourth line that's up in the air right now personnel wise.
UPDATE: Fourth line will be Porter-McClement-Hinote.

The Blues have the top power play in the NHL (40.9%) and might go with five forwards if Stempniak plays. Coach Andy Murray has used Stempniak and Kariya on the points with McDonald, Boyes and Tkachuk up front on the first unit.

Manny Legace will make his fourth consecutive start. He'll likely split the Blues' back-to-back games, Friday/Saturday, with rookie Ben Bishop. When Bishop plays, he'll become the tallest goalie in NHL history at 6-foot-7. Meaningless, but what the heck.
