|Blues' Steen, Jackson Sidelined
|ST. LOUIS (AP) -- The St. Louis Blues winger Alex Steen and defenseman Barret Jackman will be sidelined at least four weeks because of injuries.
Steen has a high ankle sprain in his right leg and Jackman a broken right index finger. They were injured Wednesday night in a 4-3 overtime loss in Columbus.
Steen was injured near the end of the second period after falling awkwardly.
Jackman, who missed nine games earlier this season with a sprained knee, took a shot off the hand with roughly 6 minutes remaining in regulation.
The Blues are already playing without David Perron (concussion) and Vladimir Sobotka (broken foot) and have had a number of key players miss significant time this season because of injury.
