If you are one of those fantasy owners who believe NHLers play better on their birthday, then make sure you have Vladimir Tarasenko active on Saturday.

Tarasenko, who turns 23 Saturday, doesn't need the birthday push to succeed. He has been terrorizing NHL goalies all season. All the same, he migh have a little extra jump against the Avs' Saturday night.

The Blues' top line this season featuring Vladimir Tarasenko, Jori Lehtera and Jaden Schwartz has to tighten up defensively.

The line has been terrible lately in five-on-five play. In Thursday's 4-3 loss to Nashville, the line was on the ice for all four of the Preds' even strength goals. According to Blues' coach Ken Hitchcock, Tarasenko needs to get locked in without the puck. Hitchcock also noted that Lehtera, who came to St. Louis from Russia this season, seems tired after back-to-back games, which is predictable given that there are few such contests on the KHL schedule.

Alexander Ovechkin is a big fan of Vladimir Tarasenko.

The Caps superstar thinks that Tarasenko will also be a huge NHL star. When Tarasenko was on the under 18 Russian team Ovechkin said he told the youngster the following: "Right away, I tell him, 'You're going to be a great player.' He's going to have a great future." Tarasenko's skills are elite. If you haven't seen his goal against the Rangers last week you are really missing out. If you are fortunate enough to have Tarasenko on your dynasty fantasy league team, congratulations. If you do not own him, he is too expensive to acquire now. The horse has left the barn.
