Though his season numbers remain strong, things had been awful cold for Chris Stewart recently, as he'd collected just three points in his last 15 games entering Tuesday's action. This was his first multi-point effort since rattling off three straight such performances on March 12, 14 and 16. (Updated 4/23/13).

05/03/2013 00:34 Blues score late, go up 2-0 on defending champion Kings

Chris Stewart has much to prove entering the 2012-13 season. After two consecutive 28-goal seasons, Stewart dropped off to 15 last year and was viewed by the organization as being out of shape. The Blues signed him to a one-year deal in the offseason, with the intent of having Stewart mature into a proper professional. That same strategy worked with T.J. Oshie, who wised up and now has a five-year deal in his pocket. Stewart signed on with a professional training and nutrition group in the offseason, so he seems to realize the crossroads at which his career currently sits. St. Louis head coach Ken Hitchcock continues to refer to Stewart as a top-six forward, though the coach often relegated him to third- and sometimes fourth-line duty last season. Hitchcock will likely start Stewart on the second line with Patrik Berglund and perhaps David Perron. There were predictions that Stewart would blossom into a 30-goal scorer prior to the 2011-12 season; nobody is making that prediction now. (Updated 8/14/12)
