Steen scores league-leading 15th, 16th goals to lead Blues to 7-3 win over Avalanche

ST. LOUIS - Alexander Steen scored his league-leading 15th and 16th goals and the St. Louis Blues' slumping power play woke up with three goals in a 7-3 win over the Colorado Avalanche on Thursday night.

St. Louis has won seven of nine and is off to the fastest start in franchise history with 12 wins in its first 17 games.

Derek Roy, David Backes, Vladimir Tarasenko, Chris Stewart and Jay Bouwmeester also scored for the Blues, who have won their last five home meetings with the Avalanche.

T.J. Oshie added four assists for the first four-point game of his career.

The Blues were 3 for 4 on the power play, breaking out of a 1-for-15 skid that spanned the previous five-plus games.

Nathan MacKinnon, Matt Duchene and Ryan O'Reilly scored for Colorado, which lost back-to-back contests for the first time this season.

Quote of the Day

This is a great day for me. This is something I've been thinking about for a long time. This is a great opportunity that the St. Louis Blues organization, (owner) Tom Stillman and Doug Armstrong are giving me and trusting me in doing...This is going to be a great challenge for me.
