Pietrangelo has not played since the team's crushing 6-1 win over the Detroit Red Wings. During his absence, the club has gone 2-2-0 and enters Sunday's contest after winning the first leg of a home-and-home with the Jets by a 2-0 count Saturday night.
The 27-year-old is tied for eighth in league scoring among defensemen with 23 points in 30 games.
Meanwhile, with a single point in Sunday’s game the Blues can leap the idle Nashville Predators and claim top spot in the Central Division.
