Tarasenko posts hat-trick in pivotal Game 5


Vladimir Tarasenko scored three goals in Tuesday’s 5-2 win over the Minnesota Wild in Game 5

Tarasenko was instrumental to the Blues comeback win over the Wild. The 30-year-old sniper woke up in the third period and kicked things off with an early goal just 63 seconds into the frame. Just under a minute and a half later he found the back of the net once more to put pull them ahead of the Wild by two goals (4-2). The cherry on top of it all was his empty-net goal for the natural hat-trick as the Blues took the pivotal Game 5 while on the road. He has four goals and an assist through five games this post-season
