What is the St. Louis Blues’ lineup going to look like? Get to know some of the guys you’ll be watching. The Blues aren’t exactly a team of unknowns, but they also aren’t a team Bruins fans see a ton. Sure, they played twice this season, but those games are easy to forget. You’ll be familiar with the Blues’ stars, and with some of their wiley veterans. But what about the rest of the lineup? Let’s take a look at how the Blues will (probably) line up when Monday night rolls around. First line Jaden Schwartz - Brayden Schenn - Vladimir Tarasenko A true power line.

St. Louis Blues forward Ivan Barbashev has been suspended for Sunday's Game 6 of the Stanley Cup Final after delivering an illegal check to the head of Boston Bruins forward Marcus Johansson in Thursday's Game 5.

The NHL Department of Player Safety issued the discipline on Friday. The Blues hold a 3-2 lead in the series and can win the Cup with a Game 6 victory.

Barbashev was cited for a high check in which his shoulder rattled the head of Johansson in the first period of Thursday's game, won 2-1 by the Blues.

The Department of Player Safety said that Barbashev delivered a "high, forceful hit that makes Johansson's head the main point of contact, on a hit where such head contact was avoidable."

Barbashev was not called for a penalty, and Johansson remained in the game.

The 23-year-old Barbashev has six points (three goals, three assists) in 24 games this postseason. He scored a goal in Game 3 of the Stanley Cup Finals.

In the regular season, Barbashev scored 26 points (14 goals, 12 assists) in 80 games.
