The road to health has been a long and at times arduous journey for Robby Fabbri.
But the St. Louis Blues forward is looking for more good times against the Dallas Stars in Game 2 of the Western Conference Second Round at Enterprise Center on Saturday (3 p.m. ET; NBC, SN, TVAS).
Fabbri scored the Blues' first goal in their 3-2 win in Game 1 on the best-of-7 series Thursday.
It was his first goal since Nov. 23, a span of 25 games, including three games against the Winnipeg Jets in the first round.
"I'm not going to sugarcoat it," Fabbri said. "It's been a tough few years and a tough year this year. That's all washed away with where we are right now, and things are all coming together."
Selected by the Blues with the No. 21 pick of the 2014 NHL Draft, Fabbri had 37 points (18 goals, 19 assists) in 72 regular-season games as a rookie in 2015-16, and then tied Vladimir Tarasenko for the St. Louis lead with 15 points (four goals, 11 assists) during the 2016 Stanley Cup Playoffs.
