Coach Ken Hitchcock said not to read too much into it as he tries some new lines to shake things up. The Blues have five goals in their last five games. Reaves is the team's enforcer and Cracknell is a fourth-line winger, so don't expect this to help Patrik Berglund's production. (Updated 4/16/13).

04/27/2013 23:03 Blues beat Hawks to snag home-ice in first round
Brian Elliott made 22 saves and Jaden Schwartz had his first two-goal game as the St. Louis Blues earned home-ice advantage for the first-round of the playoffs by defeating the Chicago Blackhawks 3-1 Saturday night.
Patrik Berglund continues to be a frustrating part of the Blues' youth movement. Just when it seems like he's arrived and has become a consistent part of the team's success, Berglund regresses. After a 52-point (22-goal) outburst in 2010-11, Berglund dropped to 38 points (19 goals, 19 assists) last season, though he was able to maintain a positive plus-minus ratio. He had a nice run in the postseason, amassing seven points in nine games while bringing an aggression that he's only shown in spurts during his first four seasons in St. Louis. Will he tease this season? Will he use his size to make more impact? That's where we're at with Berglund. He'll be the second-line center and will have quality wingers to augment his game.
