Already after the 15th move white is already lost and 16. f5 is making things worse (… but this is blitz chess).

21. Bf6 would have been better than 21. Nf6.

Morozevich could have ended this game a lot faster:

33. … Ng4!!! 34. Qe1 Rd1 35.Qxd1 Nf2+

… instead of  34. … Rd6:

34. … Rd1+ 35. Kg2 Rxc6!

… instead of 35. … Kg7:

35. … Rc1+ 36. Kg2 Rd2+ 37. Be2 Rxe2+ 38. Qxe2 Rc2

… instead of  37. Bd5:

37. …Rdd2! 38. Qf1 Bh3 39. Qe1 b2

Later on Carlsen even missed to win the game after 46. …Kf8?? …

… with 47. Qb8+!, …

…but then again this is blitz chess. 🙂

Great game!!!

Hope you’ve enjoyed it.
