NHL Playoffs 2014: Blues lose Brenden Morrow for rest of series


Ahead of their game four matchup in Chicago against the Blackhawks on Wednesday night, the St. Louis Blues received some bad news on the injury front as head coach Ken Hitchcock announced that veteran forward Brenden Morrow will miss the remainder of the opening round.

Morrow suffered a foot injury on April 10 that hasn’t quite healed as well as hoped. This led to Morrow missing game two of the series, and playing just 8:34 in Monday’s game three.

With Morrow out, Derek Roy is expected to return to the Blues lineup for game four after being benched for Monday’s 2-0 loss. Puck drop for game four is scheduled for 9:30 Wednesday night on NBCSN.
