ABOUT THE BLUES St. Louis sits second in the Central Division with a 41-19-5 mark and 87 points. This will be their first game back in St. Louis after a five-game road trip in which they won three games including a victory over the Jets in Winnipeg. Vladimir Tarasenko is just one of three 30-30 men (goals and assists) in the NHL this season (Tyler Seguin and John Tavares are the others) and leads the Blues in points with 32 goals and 32 assists. The Blues have a pair of players, Alex Steen and Ryan Reaves, born in Winnipeg. Steen has developed into one of the NHL's best two-way forwards and Reaves uses a mix of speed and size on the fourth line for St. Louis. Blues coach Ken Hitchcock is just two wins shy of 700 regular season victories in the NHL. Hitchcock is fourth on the all-time wins list behind Scotty Bowman, Al Arbour and Joel Quenneville. The Blues are 4-0 against the Jets since they returned to the league and have won six straight over the Jets/Thrashers. The Blues have an 87 per cent success rate on the penalty kill which is fourth-best in the NHL and they are on a perfect 13-for-13 run right now.
