Brandon Saad News
St. Louis Blues left wing Brandon Saad potted two goals as the team beat Toronto 6-5 in a shootout Tuesday. He started the scoring in a short-handed situation and pushed the team's lead to 5-3 before the Maple Leafs struck back and found a way to extend the game. This was a huge effort from the Blues a day after Vladimir Tarasenko (hand) and Ryan O'Reilly (foot) were ruled out for multiple weeks. With two big parts of the offense missing, Saad will have a bigger role to play and Tuesday was a great start for him on the second line. He skated with Ivan Barbashev and Brayden Schenn, with the latter also finishing with two points. Saad has only 10 goals and 13 points in 31 games for the season, but his productivity should improve in the upcoming weeks.
St. Louis Blues left wing Brandon Saad wasn't available for Wednesday's game versus Buffalo because of an illness. He was forced to sit out his seventh game of the season. It's been a rough campaign so far for Saad, as health problems have kept him on the sidelines multiple times and he has failed to perform whilst healthy. The 30-year-old had a three-game goal streak a couple of weeks back, but these are his only points in 12 outings. The Blues return to action Friday against Tampa Bay and Saad will hope to get healthy for a back-to-back set that ends Saturday versus the Panthers.
St. Louis Blues left wing Brandon Saad (upper body) will end a six-game absence on Monday against the Bruins, joining Ryan O'Reilly and Ivan Barbashev on the first line. The Blues are looking to snap a six-game losing streak and start getting some goals again after settling for fewer than three goals five times during the current streak. Saad should be able to provide a spark to the team, although he didn't exactly set the world alight prior to his injury, going scoreless in three games. Fantasy managers should expect to see him with the second power-play unit as well.
St. Louis Blues left wing Brandon Saad (upper body) was a full participant in Friday's practice, which is a great sign that he is getting ready to return to the lineup. He has been sidelined for six games after suffering an upper-body injury in only the third game of the season. Funnily enough, St. Louis won all three games with Saad in the lineup and has gone winless with him missing. Saad didn't have any personal success early on, though, finishing pointless in all three games he played. The Blues are off until Monday, so Saad will get plenty of more time to work himself back into game shape, and he should be ready to play when the team travels to Boston at the start of next week.
