Video: Blues’ Steen scores his 20th of the season

Nov 27, 2013, 11:46 PM EDT

Alexander Steen hit the 20-goal plateau on Wednesday, helping the St. Louis Blues defeat the Colorado Avalanche by a final score of 4-1. Steen has played in only 24 games. Some kind of pace.

His goal tonight puts him into a tie with Alex Ovechkin for the league lead in that category. And what a beauty it was.Steen buried a backdoor pass from David Backes to give St. Louis a two-goal lead over their Central Division opponents in the first period.

The win improves the Blues’ record to 18-3-3, and temporarily puts them in the division lead, ahead of the Chicago Blackhawks.

By the way, Steen’s career high in goals was 24. That was in 2009-10. He’s an unrestricted free agent at the end of this season, but even this torrid pace takes the theory of playing for a larger contract to a whole new level.

    Another good game by the Blues.

    What was Roy’s problem at the end? I’ve never seen such a sore loser (and sore winner) in my life. It looks like his attitude is rubbing off on his players and it is NOT a good look. Get mad at your players, yell at the refs, but don’t chirp at the opposing team at the end of the game- take your loss and go to the locker room.

    they were humbled again by the better team. Roy is a whiny punk! I respect him as an all time great but come on!
