Vladimir Tarasenko Questionable For Tonight's Game Against Wings

I will preface this with just one statement: Lysol the hell out of the locker room and get flu shots.

According to Jeremy Rutherford, Vladimir Tarasenko is ill and may not be able to play in tonight's game against the Detroit Red Wings. For a team who has had some issues scoring, losing someone who has 15 goals on the season and who really enjoys scoring against Detroit isn't a good thing. Why aren't they scoring? From the article:

"I just think we're trying to do too many things," Blues coach Ken Hitchcock said. "We're not simplifying it, we're complicating it up. All of our chances we look to get are off the rush and we're not getting that grind going until we get down. Then we're getting the grind game like we did the second and third period against LA and the third period against Anaheim."

There'll be lots of grind to be had tonight as the fourth line will start out as Brenden Morrow, Adam Cracknell, and Ryan Reaves.
