We have featured the exploits of Blues forward Vladimir Tarasenko in this space before, and watching him play never gets old. Here he is somehow smacking a backhanded shot past Wild goalie Devin Dubnyk. Tarasenko’s goal was his second second of the game, and Dubnyk was pulled a few minutes later after letting in his sixth. With the 6-1 win the Blues tied the series at two games apiece.
Correction: This story originally said Tarasenko’s goal was scored in the first period. While he did score a goal in the first period, this one was scored in the second.
