Vladimir Tarasenko hasn't scored a goal in six games.

Tarasenko has contributed three assists during his longest goal skid of the season. "I feel like he's definitely squeezing the stick a little bit harder," coach Mike Yeo said. "I mean, he's still on a pretty decent pace right now, but the quality of chances that he's had this year, I would say he's probably generating even more than last year, to be honest with you. But certainly more missed nets. A lot of posts. And I feel like a lot of shots are getting blocked. What happens is when you start squeezing the stick a little bit, you start to try to be a little bit more precise, and you try to have the perfect shot." Tarasenko will try to get back on track on Thursday versus Dallas.

All three players are still having strong seasons, but they'll need to start producing again if the Blues are going to win regularly.
