The Blues look to improve on a dud of a performance last Thursday night.

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

Thursday night was not the team's best performance, but who expected a perfect 82-0 season? Tonight is just game six for the Blues, and game five for the Bolts, who also have just one loss on the season.

The Blues' lines tonight feature rookie Sam Blais on the second line with Jaden Schwartz and Brayden Schenn, two of the team's most exciting players so far. Don't discount the defense - Alex Pietrangelo does lead the team in points after all.

Forwards:

Magnus Paajarvi-Paul Stastny-Vladimir Tarasenko

Jaden Schwartz-Brayden Schenn-Sam Blais

Vladimir Sobotka-Ivan Barbashev-Dmitrij Jaskin

Scottie Upshall-Oskar Sundqvist-Kyle Brodziak

Defensemen:

Joel Edmundson-Alex Pietrangelo

Carl Gunnarsson-Colton Parayko

Vince Dunn-Robert Bortuzzo

Goalie:

Jake Allen

Pay no mind to Paajarvi on the first line. It's either him or Sobotka. Just be happy with the fact that Chris Thorburn is benched again and Oskar Sundqvist is on the fourth line.

This is your gameday thread. Head to your favorite bar and grab a cold one, settle in, and watch some hockey.

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