- Yadier Molina got the news he wanted Thursday when he was named to the Cardinals' roster for the Division Series against the Cubs. He hasn't played since Sept. 20 because of a torn ligament in his left thumb.
- Three of Molina's teammates were not as fortunate. Pitcher Randy Choate, infielder Pete Kozma and outfielder Peter Bourjos - all of whom had been on the roster for the entire season - were left off the 25-man squad that will take on the Cubs.
- John Lackey will get the start against his good friend and former teammate Jon Lester in today's opener, the first time ever that the Cardinals and Cubs have met in the playoffs. Game time is 5:45 at Busch Stadium.
- Robby Fabbri stole the spotlight from Connor McDavid Thursday night, scoring the game-winning goal in his NHL debut as the Blues defeated Edmonton 3-1 in their season-opener at Scottrade Center. The 19-year-old Fabbri became the youngest Blue to score in his first game in franchise history, converting a pass from Jori Lehtera midway through the third period to break a 1-1 tie
