GameThread for St. Louis Blues at New Jersey Devils, Dec 9, 2016

The Blues try to snap out of the road doldrums against a Devils team that's undefeated in regulation at home.

Jake Allen's back in net tonight, Nail Yakupov might return, and Jori Lehtera's learned his lesson.

"I haven't played the way I want to play," Lehtera said this morning. "Of course I'm fighting with myself the whole time to be better. Just need to put the basic stuff in, the work ethic, and everything is going to follow after. I just have to stay positive every time when I come to the rink, just give everything and it will go better."

This is a perfect example of the power of positive thought. Or maybe of the power of positive thought to create positive thought. Or something.

It remains to be seen whether Lehtera can really make opponents notice if he's on the ice or not; most Blues fans can't tell.

This is your GameDay Thread. Comment like you still think it's weird that the Oilers traded Tailor Hall to the Devils.

Let's do this. Let's Go Blues.
