Steen factored into the scoring Saturday, as the Blues prevailed over the Wild to move on to the conference semifinals. Steen went top shelf in the first period to give St. Louis a 2-0 lead. He's a dependable forward, closing out the opening series with two goals, two assists and a plus-2 rating. The Predators are up next for the Blues -- Steen's scored 13 goals with 14 assists against them in 42 career regular-season contests.
Steen assisted on all four goals in a 4-1 win Monday over the visiting Coyotes. Steen snapped a four-game point drought in style in this one, setting up each and every one of the Blues' goals at even strength for a plus-4 rating. He's now one point off cracking the 50-point plateau for the fourth straight season, but it's worth noting his 104 shots on goal have him on pace for his lowest in a full campaign since 2008-09 with Toronto.
Steen moved to top scoring line during Tuesday's game against the Avalanche, Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports. Steen moved up to fill the void left by Paul Stastny, who suffered a lower-body injury. If Stastny is forced to miss game time it would be a nice assignment for Steen on the top unit working with the dynamic Vladimir Tarasenko and Jaden Schwartz.
Steen had a goal and an assist in Monday's 3-1 win over Los Angeles. Steen had been slumbering through his least productive stretch of the season -- an eight-game run with just one point -- but he's come alive in the last two games. After posting a goal and an assist in Saturday's win over the Islanders, Steen repeated that feat Monday against the Kings. Despite the recent slump, Steen is second on the team in scoring behind linemate Vladimir Tarasenko. Skating on the top line and getting ample power-play ice time, Steen remains a relevant player for fantasy purposes.
Steen scored an unassisted goal with a power-play assist in Saturday's 4-3 win against the Islanders. Steen stepped up with Paul Stastny (illness) sidelined, working on the top power-play unit alongside Vladimir Tarasenko. As long as Stastny is under the weather Steen has a little extra fantasy appeal.
