Vladimir Tarasenko Ties Game Two With Seconds To Spare (GIF)

The St. Louis Blues were looking for a hero in the fading seconds of Game Two, and they found one in Vladimir Tarasenko. Just two games in from his incredibly early return from a broken hand, the Russian sniper caused the Scottrade Center to erupt by finding the back of the net with less than seven seconds remaining in regulation.

The tally tied the contest, and sent it to overtime.

It was a fitting moment in a game that featured several mildly crazy moments.

With Brent Seabrook off and serving a five-minute major for hitting David Backes in the head, head coach Ken Hitchcock decided to pull Ryan Miller with just over a minute to play. It was a somewhat risky move, but Tarasenko made sure that the next goal would win the hockey game.

Here’s a look at his tying marker.

That’s an outstanding shot while under pressure. Good for Tarasenko. And overtime is underway…
