Defenseman Vince Dunn will miss Game 5 of the Western Conference final as he continues to deal with the aftereffects of taking a puck to the face in Game 3.

Coach Craig Berube said Dunn will not make the trip to San Jose for Sunday's Game 5. Dunn remains day-to-day with what the team says is an upper body injury and is believed to be concussion symptoms. 

Dunn did attend Game 4 on Friday night, a 2-1 win for the Blues that evened the series at 2-2.

"It's great," Berube said after the game. "Dunner's back here and he's around his teammates. ... It's awesome to see him. It's a day-to-day thing right now. I'm not sure exactly when he's gonna be available to play. So we'll have to see how that goes, but it's good to see him around for sure."

Forward Sammy Blais, who took a Brent Burns slapshot off his foot early in the third period on Friday and didn't return to the game, will play in Game 5.

"He should be fine," Berube said. "He got looked at and should be fine. He’ll be a player tomorrow."

The Blues didn't skate on Saturday prior to flying to San Jose for Game 5, which starts at 2 p.m. St. Louis time.
