Vladimir Tarasenko is one of the most exciting young forwards to watch in the National Hockey League. Every time his skates touch the ice, hockey fans have been to anticipate something special. Last night, in Game 4 against the Minnesota Wild, Tarasenko deliver another one of those moments. This one brought a particularly big smile to my face, as he made former Edmonton Oilers goalie, Dubnyk look ridiculous with a one-handed goal that looked to be something straight out of the NHL video game series.
As an everyday Edmonton Oilers fan, I can tell you I never thought Dubnyk was putting in his full effort. He has turned it around in Minnesota, but, last night, the St. Louis Blues made him look like Dubnyk of old… cruising to 6 – 1 victory. This opening round NHL playoff series between the St. Louis Blues and the Minnesota Wild is now even at two games apiece.
