The St. Louis Blues got Vladimir Sobotka back from a broken kneecap tonight, and he didn’t wait long to make an impact. After missing 12 contests with the injury, he slid onto a line with T.J. Oshie and Vladimir Tarasenko, and so far the trio have been dynamite.
They combined for the Blues’ first goal and also came up with the second one later on in the second period. Here’s a look at the first.
Talk about attacking the center of the ice. Sobotka made no mistake with Tarasenko’s slick pass as he sliced through the Edmonton Oilers defense. He deked around Ben Scrivens and made it look easy in the process.
Feed from Tarasenko, followed by an incredible drive to the net by Sobotka, cutting in on RNH and beating Scrivens. #STLBlues
