The Blues' December was decidedly sub-par, with the team finishing the year up with a 3-2 loss to the Nashville Predators and a 6-6-1 record. Things need to be shaken up, admittedly. Tonight's lines? There's one notable shakeup.

Why look! Paul Stastny on a scoring line! That certainly balances out Ryan Reaves on the third line and the mystery addition of Colin Frasier. Of course, Frasier last played for the Los Angeles Kings, so he's probably better in the room than Lindstrom, or something.
At this point, who cares? The issues are deeper than who is on the fourth line. A win tonight would go a long way to getting the monkey off of the Blues' back. Let's hope Martin Brodeur and the defense are up to it.
This is your gameday thread. Try to stay awake and maybe the Blues will too!
Let's do this. Let's Go Blues.
