Brayden Schenn ended his 19-game goal scoring drought on Monday. Schenn netted the game winner in St. Louis' 4-1 victory against Colorado. “This year isn’t 82 games,” Schenn said, “but over an 82-game season you’re going to have (slumps). Maybe I haven’t had one that long, but you’ve got to keep fighting through it and eventually it will come. So it’s nice to get the monkey off the back and get it going moreso offensively.” Schenn has 13 goals and 31 points in 46 contests this season.
