News: Goc scored his first goal as a member of the Blues on Tuesday against his old team in a 3-2 overtime win against Pittsburgh. He was plus-1 and added two hits and a blocked shot while winning five of seven faceoffs in the contest.
Impact: It took Goc 23 games with St. Louis to notch his first goal, which is one reason he has been rotating in and out of the lineup since the arrival of Oli Jokinen. Take note of the faceoff prowess, Goc is one of the NHL's best with a 54.4% success rate this year, which is key to his playing time as the season nears its end.

News: Goc will be the odd man out when Olli Jokinen makes his debut for the Blues on Saturday against Toronto, Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Impact: Goc has just two points in 18 games with St. Louis and only six points on the season. On the other hand, he has won 53.6 percent of his faceoffs with St. Louis, so depending on what coach Ken Hitchcock wants from his fourth-line center, Goc could be back in the lineup regularly down the stretch.
