Despite taking Central Division crown from Red Wings, Blues realize they have a lot to prove | MLive.com
Even with the Central wrapped up, I doubt the Blues sit anyone for a game against the Red Wings. It's an up hill battle for the Wings in terms of getting the 4th seed and the Blues are going to just back down.

Jonathan Ericsson was paired with Nicklas Lidstrom in practice even with the return of Ian White. Maybe it's just want he needs. I remember Andreas Lilja had a great run on the blue line before is concussion when he was paired with Lidstrom. Maybe it will work out for Ericsson too.
