Tuesday's Scratches

The Kings scratched Box 10 defenseman, Tom Preissing, in their game against the Flames on Tuesday night, giving Peter Harrold a chance to figure into the line-up again. Pressing has found himself in the press box a few times already this season, which could lead to figuring into a trade later on in the year. Preissing was considered one of the better puck moving defensemen not very long ago, but has suffered since moving to Los Angeles. Currently, Preissing has only 3 goals and 3 assists in 15 games with the team, yet he has a cap hit for the next few seasons of $2.75 million. His value could be better suited elsewhere.

The Blues had an early game against the Predators on Tuesday, which didn't seem to give their new acquisitions, Alex Steen and Carlo Colaiacovo time to get themselves into the line-up. However, it was reported that they both passed their physicals and they should be good to go tonight, when the Blues travel to Denver to take on the Avalanche.
