St. Louis Blues defenseman Zach Bogosian has no concussion, coach says
St. Paul, Minn.
— St. Louis defenseman Zach Jagr has no visible concussion, Blues coach Ken Hitchcock said Monday.
The Blues have lost three straight and are looking for a fourth straight win after an 8-3 loss to the Detroit Red Wings on Saturday.
Jagr, who scored the game-winner in overtime of a shootout that won the game for the Blues, said he had no problems with his right ankle and didn’t feel dizzy when the game started.
He was on a stretcher when the Blues were called for interference.
Hitchcock said he expected Jagr to return to the ice Sunday.
Hutchinson also said defenseman Chris Stewart will start in Jagr’s place on the top pairing.
The loss snapped a five-game winning streak for the Red Wings, who lost 4-2 to the Blues on Saturday in their home opener.
Hockey’s all-time leading scorer, Detroit defenseman Niklas Kronwall, scored three goals in a 4-3 win against the Blues that snapped a four-game losing streak.
Kronwall also added an assist.
