(KSDK Sports) -- Never in the history of the Blues have they played the first 17 games of the season and come out of it with 12 wins and if they beat Carolina tomorrow night at the Scottrade Center, they will complete a five game homestand with nine out of possible 10 points.
No question - last nights four goal, three fight second period vs Colorado was the best period of the season and there's no question who the best player on the team is and likely the best player in hockey in the young season.
His name is Steen. Alexander Steen.
He scored goals 15 and 16 last night and that is the top total in the league and he is tied for the league lead in points. Steen is a free agent, but general manager Doug Armstong said Steen doesn't want to negotiate during the season, but he wants to be a Blue.
Maybe that has something to do with his relationship with the coach.
