Previous: 9th. St. Louis Blues. 12. team. 99. The Blues continue to be a tough team to beat in the Central Division. With 16 wins at home, they will definitely be fighting for home ice with Chicago and Minnesota since they have struggled outside of their own building. In a special year that is supposed to be Ken Hitchcock’s last, the Blues beat the Blackhawks in the Winter Classic and hope to continue their success into the playoffs. Speaking of special years, Blackhawk killer Vladimir Tarasenko leads the team with 20 goals and 24 assists. It’s safe to say he is worth every penny he’s being paid..
