St. Louis Blues DFS SPIN
Robert Thomas (lower body) is sore but will remain on the road trip, according to coach Craig Berube. Thomas was injured Thursday in Arizona and should be considered day-to-day at this time. The Blues play in Colorado on Saturday and in Winnipeg on Monday before getting 12 days off for the bye week as well as the All-Star break. Thomas has 12 goals and 43 points in 48 games this season.
Colorado Avalanche DFS SPIN
Valeri Nichushkin (upper body) is questionable for Saturday's game against St. Louis, per Ryan Boulding of NHL.com. Nichushkin didn't play Thursday against Anaheim because of the injury. He has eight goals and 18 points in 20 contests this season. Denis Malgin drew into the lineup Thursday, and he might play again Saturday if Nichushkin doesn't return.
