Blues' Vladimir Tarasenko: Powers win over Bolts with hat trick, helper

Tarasenko scored a trio of goals and added an assist -- with two of those points coming on power plays -- in Thursday's 5-4 win over the Lightning.

The Russian winger's been a beast while collecting 73 and 74 points in the last two campaigns, but he's taken it up a notch this season, rattling off 27 points in his first 24 contests. Practically every one of his goals is a highlight-reel affair, with Tarasenko alternately showcasing his strength, his speed, his hands, and his cannon shot.
