Neither he, nor forward Andrew Copp or defenseman Joe Morrow practiced on Thursday.Nobody on the Jets is going to complain too loudly about getting hit by the injury bug as the team has lost among the fewest player-games in the entire league.

The Blues come to town having lost four of their previous five games and sit second-last in the Western Conference with nine wins in 26 games and 22 points.The most recent defeat, a 3-2 shootout loss in Edmonton, came after the Blues took a 2-0 lead in the first period and gave up a last-minute goal to send it to the extra period.Interim coach Craig Berube, who took over behind the bench after Mike Yeo was fired last month, told The St. Louis Dispatch that his team is “fragile.”“Guys are trying to hang on to a lead instead of making it 3-0. That’s gotta be more of our mindset. We should’ve come out in the second period and pushed the pace right away on them Florida Panthers Hats Authentic ,” he said.Including the Blues, every team on the Jets four-game homestand has undergone some kind of upheaval lately — Philadelphia Flyers on Sunday (fired their general manager Ron Hextall two weeks ago), Chicago Blackhawks on Tuesday (fired coach Joel Quenneville on Nov. 6) and Edmonton Oilers (fired coach Todd McLellan on Nov. 20).
