The St. Louis Blues could have a huge hole to fill on their blue line.
Alex Pietrangelo was injured during the third period of Saturday night’s game against the Minnesota Wild.
Wild forward Charlie Coyle appeared to catch Pietrangelo with a knee-on-knee hit as he was finishing his check.
Pietrangelo was favoring his right leg as he headed to the Blues room.
Shaw says pietrangelo is a little sore. "We'll see how he feels tomorrow "

Pietrangelo has had knee issues in the past.
During the 2012 Stanley Cup playoffs he suffered a sprained knee and underwent surgery that offseason.
The 26-year-old leads all Blues defensemen in average ice time a night (26:45) and is second amongst St. Louis blue liners with 23 points in 44 games.
