St. Louis Blues Highlights: Brenden Morrow Scores on Dirty Pass from Derek Roy (Video)

The St. Louis Blues are going to need offense from various sources to help ease the loss of Vladimir Tarasenko, and it seems that Brenden Morrow got the memo. After going pointless for 10 consecutive games, the veteran forward found the back of the net after taking a slick bass from Derek Roy.

The goal gave the Blues a 1-0 lead early in the second period and came after a bit of sustained pressure in the offensive zone.

It wasn’t just Morrow snapping a pointless streak though. Both Roy and Jay Bouwmeester had gone long stretches before assisting on the tally.

If St. Louis is going to maintain their typical offensive pace without Tarasenko, they’ll need more plays like this from their depth forwards. Everyone knows that Alexander Steen and David Backes are going to finish their chances, but Morrow scoring here and there would help alleviate some of that pressure.
