Vladimir Tarasenko Scores Goal, Adds Assist In First Period Against Predators

The legend of Vladimir Tarasenko grows. Like Johnny Appleseed scattering trees behind him, Tarasenko scatters goals in front of him. Well, that's a little bit of hyperbole, but you get my drift. In the first period of Monday night's game against the Nashville Predators, with the Blues down 1-0 Tarasenko shot the puck in stick-side on Predators goaltender Pekka Rinne. It was nearly the same move that befuddled Red Wings goaltender Jimmy Howard, and it had the same effect on Rinne:


Shortly after that highlight reel goal, Tarasenko assisted on Andy McDonald's first of the year, a power play goal. Both of the Blues' goals give credit somewhere to Tarasenko, McDonald, and Kevin Shattenkirk. Shattenkirk assisted on both, and then obviously Tarasenko and McDonald assisted on each other's. Will Tarasenko light the lamp again next period? Sure. Why not? Apparently this is what this kid's paid the big bucks to do.
