Reaves (illness) participated fully at morning skate and has been cleared to play Tuesday against the Stars, Tom Timmermann of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

Both Reaves and Vladimir Tarasenko were initially considered questionable to play Tuesday, but coach Ken Hitchcock didn't detect any sluggishness from either player during morning skate and green-lighted their entry into the lineup. Reaves was viewed as the more ill of the two players, with the bug that's been passing around the Blues' locker room affecting him for about a week. Now that it appears the illness has ran its course, Reaves will be counted on to slow the Stars' up-tempo offense with his usual display of punishing hits.
