DETROIT — Wings coach Mike Babcock said as of now he’s going with the same lineup tonight against the St. Louis Blues as he went with Sunday against the Los Angeles Kings, which means Patrick Eaves and Kurt Huskins will be healthy scratches.
St. Louis will start rookie goalie Jake Allen. He came on in relief of Brian Elliott once this season, allowing two goals on eight shots against Nashville on Feb. 5.
The Blues are without Jaroslav Halak, who injured his groin the last time the Blue visited Detroit. Elliott has struggled his season, with a 3.57 goals-against average and a .849 save percentage.
