The first-time All-Star ended a five-game goal skid with his 23rd of the season. Tarasenko’s goal at 6:46 of the third period knotted the game up at four. He now has 44 points as well, and there’s no sign this is going to stop in the second half. Jaden Schwartz, Alexander Steen and Patrik Berglund recorded the other goals. Alex Pietrangelo and David Backes chipped in with two assists apiece.

Vladimir Tarasenko extended his point-streak to five games on Saturday.

He has established himself as one of the best young forwards in the entire NHL. If you own Tarasenko's right in your fantasy league, you probably shouldn't let him go.

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.

Vladimir Tarasenko sniped two goals for the Blues on Thursday night, but Nashville drove past St. Louis by a score of 4-3.

Tarasenko now has four goals in his last four games to go with 16 goals and 28 points through 26 games this season. Tarasenko is an elite fantasy performer and should be in all lineups on a nightly basis.
