Jori Lehtera Did Not Participate In Practice This Morning

The Blues' first injury bug has bitten.

Billy Hurst-USA TODAY Sports

Jori Lehtera was hit with a Jay Bouwmeester shot Wednesday night in the final period of the Blues' win. According to Jeremy Rutherford, he sat out of this morning's practice and Ken Hitchcock had to send out these lines:

Alexander Steen-David Backes-T.J. Oshie

Jaden Schwartz-Paul Stastny-Vladimir Tarasenko

Dmitrij Jaskin-Marcel Goc-Patrik Berglund

Chris Porter-Steve Ott-Ryan Reaves

The hiccup may throw the chemistry off a bit on the second and third lines, but it is good to see that a complete shuffle of the lines didn't happen.

Lehtera has two assists so far this series. As per Rutherford, he's "50-50" for tonight's game.
