The Blues, who recently fired head coach Davis Payne, are 2-1 since new head coach Ken Hitchcock took the reins November 6th. The Blues, which now stand at 8-7 with 17 points, currently sit at fourth place in the Central Division. The Chicago Blackhawks lead the division with a strong 11-4 record and an NHL-best 25 points.

This Tuesday will mark the first season matchup with the Detroit Red Wings and the only time the Blues will face the Panthers in the regular season. The Blues previously played the Wild on November 5th, the 2-1 loss that precipitated the coach Payne firing.

If the Blues want a chance to gain ground on the Blackhawks, a couple wins this week could certainly help.
