Scouting Report:

The Blues should get a boost on Monday night with the return of center Paul Stastny to the lineup. He has missed the last four games because of a lower-body injury. Prior to being injured on Feb. 9, Stastny had scored eight goals and added eight assists in his previous 15 games.

To begin a new winning streak, the Blues will have to put an end to a four-game winning streak for the Panthers, who earned a 3-2 victory over the Kings in Los Angeles on Saturday. All four wins have come on the Panthers' current road trip, which ends in St. Louis.

The Panthers have won seven of their last eight games as they battle for a playoff position in the Eastern Conference.

For the first time in franchise history, the Panthers won games in San Jose, Anaheim and Los Angeles on the same trip. Saturday's win was their first in Los Angeles since 2002.

"It's been a really big road trip for us so far," Jussi Jokinen told NHL.com. "Obviously, we have all the players back now and we have a healthy team, so we're playing with lots of confidence. The bottom line is I think we see the playoff picture." (More from Yahoo! Sports via AP)
