Chris Stewart's Penalty Shot Goal

With three goals in his last five games, Chris Stewart has seemingly played his way out of Ken Hitchcock’s doghouse. He has since been moved back up the second line, rejoining Patrik Berglund and David Perron. Stewart picked up his thirteenth goal of the season in Edmonton on Wednesday night. After multiple scoring chances and an impressive offensive possession, Edmonton turned over the puck as Taylor Hall tried to hold the blue line. Perron made a quick, backhand pass to Stewart who was all alone on a breakaway. Hall then raced after Stewart and hooked him before he was able to get a shot off. Stewart was awarded a penalty shot and converted on Edmonton goaltender Yann Danis. It was Stewart’s first goal on a penalty shot since 2010, when he scored on the Blues’ Ty Conklin as a member of the Colorado Avalanche.
