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."

Blues head coach Mike Yeo said he's focused on working with Vladimir Tarasenko.

"I think there was many times in the game where I saw something I was very impressed with," Yeo said of Tarasenko's play. "It’s not a matter of when he comes back to the bench and he scores a goal, but when he’s adding on to his game and doing things as far, in terms of his leadership, that go unnoticed — his backcheck, the way he broke up the one play in the second period — those are things you want to make sure they understand and feel proud about those. Likewise if there’s something that’s not right, you want to correct it."
