The St. Louis Blues‘s injuries woes continued Friday as defenceman Torey Krug exited Game 3 against the Minnesota Wild with a lower-body injury.

Krug left the ice with 8:58 remaining in the first period, and the Blues later confirmed he would not return. The 31-year-old has recorded three assists for St. Louis in the playoffs.

It represents a third loss on the blue line for the Blues, who have been playing without Nick Leddy and Robert Bortuzzo. Both have upper-body injuries.
