by Chris Pinkert / St. Louis Blues

ST. LOUIS - After a 5-4 win against the Tampa Bay Lightning on Thursday - the Blues' sixth straight victory on home ice - Blues Head Coach Ken Hitchcock said his team was still searching for its identity.

by Dan O'Neill / St. Louis Blues
Matchup

The Blues will look to extend their six-game home win streak against a Jets team that they have dominated since the team resurfaced in Winnipeg. St. Louis earned points in all four meetings with the Jets last season, going 3-0-1 in the series. Since the Jets returned to the NHL, the Blues have garnered points in 14 of their 15 outings against them, including a 5-1-1 record at Scottrade Center. The Blues' power play, coming off a three-goal performance against Tampa Bay on Thursday, has been hot against the Jets, converting in each of the last four matchups (5-for-17, 29.4 percent).

Where Are They Now: Ed Staniowski

by Ashali Vise / Special Contributor

Former Blues goaltender Ed Staniowski was drafted by the St. Louis Blues in 1975 - but unlike most hockey players, that's not the only draft he dreamed about. He also wanted to join the Canadian military, but his talent between the pipes put that plan on hold. At least for awhile.

After a successful four years of junior hockey and a Memorial Cup, Staniowski was picked up by the Blues and began a 10-season NHL career that also included stints in Winnipeg and Hartford. Although he tallied almost 70 wins, his journey of becoming a real hero began when he retired from the NHL and joined the Canadian Forces. Reaching the rank of Lieutenant Colonel, Staniowski was deployed multiple times to various locations including Africa and Afghanistan. He retired from the military in 2014, which will allow him to return to St. Louis for the Winter Classic Alumni Game on Dec. 31.
