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.
Tarasenko reaches the 20-goal plateau and Oshie sets a career-high in assists with No. 36. #STLBlues

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.
Tarasenko and Schwartz each scored their 20th goals of the season tonight, giving the Blues four 20 goal scorers.

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