The Blues enter the Stanley Cup playoffs limping.

Olympic hero T.J. Oshie and Patrick Berglund will miss St. Louis' postseason opener against defending champion Chicago on Thursday with upper-body injuries, Blues coach Ken Hitchcock announced at the team's morning skate.

St. Louis, which lost its last six regular-season games, will be without its second-leading scorer in Oshie (21 goals, 39 assists), who took a hit to the head from Minnesota's Mike Rupp last Thursday. The 27-year-old has reportedly been dealing with concussion symptoms.

Berglund, who had 14 goals and 18 assists in the regular season, has been out since Friday with a shoulder injury. The 25-year-old center is also one of the Blues' main faceoff men.

The timetable for each player's return is unknown. Game 2 is Saturday afternoon.
