The Winnipeg Jets conclude a four-game Central Division road trip tonight against the St. Louis Blues.
Shane Hnidy joins Brian Munz for the broadcast on TSN 1290 Radio at 7pm ct. Dennis Beyak and Mike Johnson will call the action on TSN Jets.
The Jets have earned three of a possible six points on their current trip, and sit sixth in the Central Division with a 5-6-2 record, good enough for 12 points.
Goaltender Ondrej Pavelec (4-5-2, 2.85, .909) returns to the crease after a much deserved day off Sunday against Colorado. Pavelec had started six straight games.
The Jets held an optional pre-game skate Tuesday morning, so the lineup will not be known until warm-up.
Winnipeg recalled 22-year-old defenseman Ben Chiarot from the AHL's St. John's IceCaps.  He was on the ice Tuesday morning wearing #63, but is not expected to play.
St. Louis is coming off a 6-1 win in Nashville Saturday night. They are 2-0-2 in their last four games.
The (6-1-2) Blues are fourth in the Central Division, one point behind third-place Minnesota and one point ahead of fifth place Nashville.
Winnipeg native Alexander Steen is on a four-game goal scoring streak that includes six goals.
T.J. Oshie is on a four-game point streak (one goal and four assists)
Kevin Shattenkirk has three assists in his last two games.
St. Louis has the #1 ranked power play in the NHL at 30%. They have scored at least one power play goal in all but two games this year.
The Jets won the first meeting of the season between these two teams, 4-3 in a shootout on October 18th at MTS Centre.
