The Blues’ five-on-five struggles, and goal scoring problems in general, appear to be fixed. It doesn’t matter how many players are out of the line-up, the Blues are finding ways to get on the scoresheet. Has defense been optional the last couple of games? Sure, but let’s all enjoy one problem being fixed, for now.
If the Blues are racking up goals without Vladimir Tarasenko, will he slide right in and light the lamp himself? He’s slotted to come back at some point during this road trip, but tonight isn’t the night:
Berube on Tarasenko: "It's a matter of him saying he's ready. He's not going to get more ready than he is now. He needs to play games. He's done everything. He's worked out hard, he's trained, he's in good shape. He's done all that stuff. But it's about playing games now."— Jeremy Rutherford (@jprutherford) March 3, 2021
If he’s that ready, but still isn’t ready for tonight, fans may see him return against LA either Friday or Saturday night.
This is your GameDay Thread. Comment like you want another goal from the new guy tonight.
Let’s do this. Let’s Go Blues.
