ANOTHER LOOK AT TARASENKO'S KHL ALL-STAR SKILLS COMPETITION GOAL:

We were scooped on this one by the hard-working "Game Time" link rats, but since it relates to the Blues' top prospect, we're going to go ahead and re-post the video of Vladimir Tarasenko's "puck-on-a-string" goal in the KHL All-Star Skills Competition.

Note further that the goalie victimized by this play is former Blues' draftee Konstantin Barulin, who has developed into one of the best goalies in Russia.

Barulin and ex-Riverman Chris Holt were the two goalies for Team Sandis Ozolinsh, which was the "home" team in the All-Star Game as it was played in Riga, Latvia. Barulin gave up "only" four goals on 28 shots in 30:27 of action, while Holt was shelled for ten goals on 23 shots in 27:10 of play... including an early third-period score by Roman Cervenka on which Tarasenko got the primary assist, and which put Team Sergei Fedorov ahead for keeps in the contest, and Tarasenko's goal later in the third.


Yesterday's Blues header

St. Louis is home to the Blues, both the hockey club and that uniquely American style of music that draws on the sorrows and pain of everyday life.

Because your Game Time Prospect Department admires both types of the Blues, and because we also admire the "Road Music" feature posted by our buddy Cross Check Raise before every road game, we've decided to incorporate some of our favorite music into our weekly look at all things Blue.

We'll kick off this feature with out favorite Led Zeppelin song, "When The Levee Breaks." Originally written by the husband-and-wife blues team of Kansas City Joe McCoy and Memphis Minnie, Led Zep's version rocks you like a hurricane... and this particular video clip incorporates some pretty powerful images of Hurricane Katrina, which devastated another Mississippi River city that has a long history with the blues.

Check it out.
