The implication is that Barret Jackman would suit up if it were a playoff game, and that bodes well for his chances of returning for Game 1. The Blues feel no need to rush him back for Saturday's regular season finale. (Updated 4/27/13).
05/03/2013 00:34 Blues score late, go up 2-0 on defending champion Kings
Defenseman Barret Jackman scored his first career playoff goal with 50.4 seconds remaining, lifting the St. Louis Blues to a 2-1 win over the defending Stanley Cup champion Los Angeles Kings for the second straight time Thursday night.
The Blues re-signed Barret Jackman to a three-year deal in the offseason after a sturdy 10-year career with St. Louis. He's as steady as they come on the back line and is habitually the team's leader in blocked shots. At the age of 31, Jackman remained one of team's leaders in minutes played, topping 20-plus minutes for a sixth straight season. There isn't much here for the fantasy player, but hockey purists can appreciate Jackman's steady work. (Updated 8/14/12)
