Vladimir Tarasenko scored his first goal of the 2017 playoffs in the Blues' 4-3 overtime win against Minnesota in Game 5 on Saturday.

With a goal and three points in five playoff games, Tarasenko's offensive contributions have been somewhat lackluster when measured against the extremely high bar set for him. The Blues won the series regardless though and will be looking for him to be a major contributor in round two against Nashville. Tarasenko will certainly have his work cut out for him as the Blues will be facing a red hot goaltender in Pekka Rinne.

Vladimir Tarasenko will be looking for his first goal of the 2017 Stanley Cup Playoffs in Game 5 on Saturday.

The Blues have found a way to grab a 3-1 series lead despite the fact that they've only scored seven goals in the series. It's impressive to think how good they'd be if they actually got production from their top goal scorer. The Russian winger 16 shots on goal and two assists in four playoff games. "There’s no question, we need our best players to play their best," Blues coach Mike Yeo said. "That’s not just in the playoffs, that’s any time. It’s certainly magnified right now. What we need from Vlady, from all our top players, is make sure we understand if we’re going to play well, if we’re going to beat these guys, then we have to be great defensively."

"They're going to really key on him, he's going to have tough matchups and it's going to be hard to get away from them, because they’re such a deep team."

Feb 18 - 4:19 PM

Vladimir Tarasenko believes the Blues have improved so much because they're playing for each other.

It's been quite a transformation since Mike Yeo took over as head coach. "We changed our strategy a little bit," Tarasenko said. "It’s not a question of (if Ken) Hitchcock was better or good or something like that — both coaches are great. But we didn’t play like we were supposed to do, we didn’t play 100 percent before. But now, I hope we find our game. Try to play more aggressive and the main part is play for each other. If one guy makes a mistake, you see how many guys are blocking shots, back checks and all this stuff. Play for each other every moment, every day and every game and go small steps. Our goal is the Stanley Cup, and that’s why we’re here."
