Halak's next start

It appears Jaroslav Halak will likely make his first start since the beginning of the month in the coming days. The St. Louis Blues' top netminder was on the bench in a backup role yesterday, after dealing with a groin injury for the past few weeks. According to the team's website, he figures to get the nod in one of the upcoming back-to-back contests -- either Tuesday against San Jose or Wednesday in Colorado.
