Blues' Ivan Barbashev: Playing first-line role Monday

Barbashev (lower body) will play Monday in Los Angeles, Lou Korac of NHL.com reports. The lower-body injury Barbashev picked up Saturday evidently wasn't too serious, as it won't force him to miss any additional time. He'll have some DFS appeal Monday, as Barbashev is slated to skate on the top line alongside Ryan O'Reilly and David Perron.

Blues' Ivan Barbashev: Scores on power play

Barbashev netted a power-play goal and three hits in Friday's 9-1 win over the Wild.
