St. Louis Blues Highlights: Vladimir Tarasenko Finishes Stellar Passing Play (Video)

The St. Louis Blues are getting explosive production from the combination of Vladimir Sobotka, T.J. Oshie and Vladimir Tarasenko. The trio scored the team’s opening goal against the Edmonton Oilers and combined again for the second to give the Blues a 2-1 lead in the second period.

That’s a stellar play that almost looked set because of the way that they screened defenders for each other. It was Tarasenko’s 20th goal of the season and Oshie broke his previous career high in assists as well.

Sobotka seems to be the key to the success of this line, and all three players bring something special to the ice for the Blues. Jaden Schwartz would score later on in the game as well, giving St. Louis four different 20-goal scorers. That’s an impressive amount of scoring depth.

The Blues seemed a bit sluggish at the start of the game, but really got rolling towards the middle of the second period.
