The original plan was just to post Blues rookie right winger Vladimir Tarasenko’s beauty 2nd goal from Saturday night. Clicked on the wrong link and ended up watching his first NHL goal.
At first glace it was a nice breakaway goal from the blueline in, getting behind the defenseman on the long stretch plan. Not great, but a nice move after a nice long bank pass.
Upon a couple views of the goal, the best move in the entire process is the second or two that Tarasenko holds up the blade of the defenseman’s stick allowing the pass to go through.
Here is Tarasenko’s 2nd goal of the game. No description needed.
