When the St. Louis Blues are discussed outside the local media, rarely are guys like Alex Steen mentioned. Instead, players such as David Backes and Jaroslav Halak are discussed along with the younger talents such as Alex Pietrangelo, TJ Oshie and David Perron. Steen lacks the “big name” appeal that other players carry and he lacks the flashy plays that draw attention to other members of the organization.
Montreal would come out and dominate in the second as Andrei Kostitsyn would tip-in a shot from Jaroslav Spacek that was set up from Max Pacioretty to take the lead. Just over two minutes later it would be a goal for Pacioretty himself that would give the Canadiens a 3-1 lead heading into the second intermission.
