VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) — Brayden Schenn continues to make quite an impression on his new teammates.
Schenn scored at 2:41 of overtime to give the St. Louis Blues a 4-3 victory over the Vancouver Canucks on Saturday night.
Acquired from Philadelphia in a trade at June’s NHL draft, the center now has five goals and 10 assists in a career-high seven-game points streak.
“It’s been fun,” Schenn said. “The team is winning, we’re playing good hockey. … Guys are stepping up.”
Colton Parayko, Vladimir Sobotka and Joel Edmundson scored in regulation for Western Conference-leading St. Louis. Paul Stastny had three assists and Jake Allen stopped 20 shots.
On the winner, Schenn cut through the neutral zone and across the blue line and beat Canucks goalie Anders Nilsson high on the blocker side for his eighth goal of the season.
