Vladimir Tarasenko out four to six months with dislocated shoulder

Vladimir Tarasenko out four to six months with dislocated shoulder

The dislocation happened early in the first period Saturday night. Often one of the (small) consolation prizes that exist when a player misses the Stanley Cup playoffs is the selection to their home nation’s IIHF World Championships team. Unfortunately for Vladimir Tarasenko, there will be no coda to this year’s season. His final movement came Saturday night during the first period when he hit the boards while checking Nathan MacKinnon of the Colorado Avalanche. It didn’t look like much, but Tarasenko skated off, sat on the bench before heading to the locker room, and did not return...

Blues playoff watch: April 5th

They’re not dead yet, but it’s close. These standings should look a hell of a lot different. But they don’t, because we have a team incapable of playing a full 60 minutes and a goalie who, last night according to Mike Milbury, played like “ca-ca.” One period away from two points, and eight seconds away from a point, and this is what happens. I’m surprised Vladimir Tarasenko only broke one stick over his knee. Still, according to PlayoffStatus.com, somehow the Blues have a near 40% chance of getting in. The Avalanche have to lose to the Sharks...

Midway through the second period, Vladimir Tarasenko took a feed from Brayden Schenn and buried a wrist shot in the top right corner to tie the game 2-2.

GameThread: Vancouver Canucks at St. Louis Blues

Will the Blues play down to the Canucks’ level, or rise above the temptation? Tonight’s game should, in theory, be a slam dunk: the Canucks are the second-worst team in the Western Conference. They are not good. The Blues have already defeated them twice this season, and a third time would help the Blues keep pace with the Kings and Ducks. Fortunately, Vladimir Tarasenko will be returning tonight, so that’s one more bit of offense that the Canucks have to deal with - along with Schwartz, Schenn, and the team’s defense.
