T.J. Oshie was bumped off St. Louis' top line during Monday's practice.
He played on the second line with Derek Roy and Vladimir Sobotka, while Chris Stewart took his place alongside David Backes and Alexander Steen. "I liked what I saw at practice, but I have to sleep on it ... but I really liked it," coach Ken Hitchcock said. "I'm going to say it again, for us to get better, we need more participants. So sometimes it doesn't matter how good you have one line, you need more participants. Possibly it's the time that they use their impact to help other people play better. We need that. We need more people playing better." Oshie has been great with Backes and Steen this season. He has 11 points in 12 games this year.

T.J. Oshie has collected four points, including three assists, in four games to open the 2013-14 season.
St Louis' top line, which also features David Backes and Alexander Steen, has been firing on all cylinders with a combined 18 points. Oshie produced 20 points in 30 games last season and being healthy has a lot to do with his solid start. "A couple of years ago, I had a wrist injury lingering and then a couple of broken ankles in there," Oshie said. "I feel good right now - knock on wood, stay healthy this year - but I feel great."

The St. Louis Blues have a deep roster of talent and plenty of high expectations entering the 2013-14 season.
"Our expectations are higher than anyone else's," Blues winger T.J. Oshie said. "I know it's just summer hockey, but we've got some really good players in here and there's going to be some competition throughout the locker room ... who's playing each night, who's playing in which spots and who's getting what ice time." Oshie added that the team will need to stay levelheaded over the course of the year and prepare themselves properly to compete each night. He missed the last 15 games of the regular season last year because of a foot injury, but he did return during the playoffs.

T.J. Oshie recorded a team-worst minus-4 for the Blues in their opening round series loss to Los Angeles.
Oshie returned from a late-season injury to suit up for the Blues in Game One of the series, but it's fair to question whether he returned too soon, as he became a defensive liability. The winger is a talented scorer and we shouldn't read too much into such a small sample, but let's hope coach Ken Hitchcock has a short memory entering next season.

Right winger T.J. Oshie scored two goals for the St. Louis Blues in Los Angeles Thursday night but it was the Kings who emerged victorious.

Oshie's first goal of the night gave the Blues a 2-0 lead. That was at 4:32. He also scored the only goal of the second period to give the Blues a 3-2 lead. The goals were Oshie's first and second of the playoffs. Also scoring for the Blues was David Backes, his first of the series. Vladimir Sobotka chipped in with two assists for the Blues, his second and third of the post-season.

St. Louis Blues coach Ken Hitchcock confirmed Tuesday that T.J. Oshie (ankle) will be back in the lineup for tonight's Game 1 vs. the Kings.
Oshie's been sidelined since March 28 with the injury but practiced Monday and appeared ready to return. Hitchcock said the Blues wouldn't rush Oshie back into the lineup, which means he should be as close to 100 percent as possible at this time of the year. Those owners that drafted Oshie in their playoff pools are feeling much better right now. Rookie Vladimir Tarasenko will sit for Oshie.

While the St. Louis Blues seem optimistic about getting him back for the start of the playoffs, it's worth noting that T.J. Oshie didn't practice on Sunday.
The young forward has been sidelined since March 28 with an ankle injury that required a surgical procedure. It's difficult to tell if the Blues are merely being overly optimistic regarding his return.
