Blues' Alex Steen, Barret Jackson sidelined at least 4 weeks because of injuries

ST. LOUIS - St. Louis Blues winger Alex Steen and defenceman Barret Jackman will be sidelined at least four weeks because of injuries.

Steen has a high ankle sprain in his right leg and Jackman a broken right index finger. They were injured Wednesday night in a 4-3 overtime loss in Columbus.

Steen was injured near the end of the second period after falling awkwardly.

Jackman, who missed nine games earlier this season with a sprained knee, took a shot off the hand with roughly six minutes remaining in regulation.

The Blues are already playing without David Perron (concussion) and Vladimir Sobotka (broken foot) and have had a number of key players miss significant time this season because of injury.
