Maple Leafs At Blues Game Preview: Will Tarasenko play tonight?

The forward was seen out and about in a boot.

The Blues may well be facing their biggest challenge so far this winning streak. No, not the Toronto Maple Leafs, though with that 19-8-2 road record and Auston Matthews and John Tavares contributing to the Leafs’ average 3.44 goals per game there’s reason for concern.

No, forget all of that. Vladimir Tarasenko may be in a boot.

Oh my geeeeeeeerd:

Wait wait wait.

Exhale, everyone. With Tarasenko good to go and Alexander Steen back from the birth of his daughter, it’s status quo as far as the line-up goes. Hopefully that means status-quo as far as the result.

Sure, the Blues could afford to lose one, but why would you want them to? Jordan Binnington starts in net, and he’s won an impressive eight straight. The Blues are 12-2-2 against the Leafs in their last 16 games. It’s difficult to find much to worry about here.

Oh, and as a head’s up, the Blues are six points behind the Predators with three games in hand. I’m not saying anything. I’m just sayin’.
