Not only are the St. Louis Blues riding a six-game winning streak, they’ll get one of their top players, Paul Stastny, back tonight at home versus New Jersey.

Stastny (shoulder) has missed the Blues’ last eight games. Against the Devils, he’ll reportedly skate on a line between wingers Alex Steen and Joakim Lindstrom.

“I hope we stay to the same structure and he’s going to add to the mix,” said coach Ken Hitchcock, per Jeremy Rutherford of the Post-Dispatch.

The Blues (8-3-1) got off to a shaky start to the season, but have not lost since a “wake-up call” performance versus Vancouver on Oct. 23.
