Tarasenko scored a pair of goals, including one on the power play, in Sunday's 5-2 loss to Colorado in Game 4.
Tarasenko buried a breakaway chance to open the scoring 4:25 into the second period, then he brought the Blues to within 3-2 midway through the final frame with a wrist shot from the left circle on a St. Louis power play. The goals were Tarasenko's only points of the series, and the 29-year-old had just seven shots with a minus-8 rating in the four games.
Tarasenko (lower body) will play in Monday's Game 1 against the Avalanche, Lou Korac of NHL.com reports.
Tarasenko will return to the lineup for the first time since May 3 for the start of the postseason. The five-time 30-goal scorer's return will be a welcome sight for a Blues team that will be without David Perron (COVID-19 protocols). Tarasenko should slot into a top-six role and work on the top power-play unit.
Tarasenko (lower body) participated in Saturday's practice, but his status for Monday's series opener against the Avalanche remains uncertain, Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Tarasenko missed the final six games of the regular season with this injury, and he totaled a pedestrian four goals and 10 assists in 24 games before then as he made his return to the ice following shoulder surgery. Despite his lack of productivity this season, the Russian winger's still capable of providing a major offensive boost if he plays, and Tarasenko's presence will become even more vital if the Blues end up being without leading scorer David Perron (COVID-19 protocols).
Tarasenko (lower body) is in doubt for Monday's Game 1 versus Colorado, Jeremy Rutherford of The Athletic reports.
After missing the first two months of the season with a shoulder problem, Tarasenko has now been sidelined for the Blues' last six games due to his lower-body problem. Prior to getting hurt, the Russian winger was struggling to rack up goals with just one tally in his last nine appearances. With injuries limiting his games, Tarasenko has now missed the 30-goal mark in two consecutive seasons.
Tarasenko (lower body) won't play Thursday versus the Wild, Jeremy Rutherford of The Athletic reports. Head coach Craig Berube said "it's a possibility" the winger could be available by the time the Blues open their postseason schedule Monday.
Tarasenko will end up missing six straight games and eight of the last nine to end the regular season. The Russian winger is far from a guarantee to be ready for the start of the playoffs -- the Blues will want him back as soon as possible, regardless of if they draw the Golden Knights or the Avalanche in the first round.
Tarasenko (lower body) won't play Wednesday versus Minnesota, but he could be ready to return for Thursday's rematch with the Wild, Jim Thomas of The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Tarsenko skated with the taxi squad Wednesday morning, so even if he isn't able to rejoin the lineup for Thursday's season finale, he appears to be on track to suit up for Game 1 of St. Louis' first-round playoff series. The 29-year-old winger has picked up 14 points through 24 games this campaign.
Tarasenko (lower body) will not be available for Monday's game against the Kings, Jim Thomas of The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Tarasenko has now missed six of the last seven games. He has 14 points in 24 games this season while battling multiple injuries. The 29-year-old winger will be questionable for Wednesday's game against the Wild.
Tarasenko (lower body) won't return to the lineup Saturday versus the Golden Knights, Lou Korac of NHL.com reports.

Tarasenko (lower body) won't play Friday versus Vegas, Jim Thomas of The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

Tarasenko aggravated his lower-body injury during Monday's win over Anaheim and won't play in Wednesday's rematch with the Ducks, Jeremy Rutherford of The Athletic reports.
Tarasenko returned to action Monday after missing two games with his lower-body issue and ended up aggravating the injury. The good news is he's considered day-to-day, so he may not be sidelined for long. Check back for another update on the Russian winger's status ahead of Friday's game versus Vegas.
Tarasenko (lower body) is slated to play in Monday's clash with the Ducks, Tom Timmermann of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
After missing the first two months of the season, Tarasenko has racked up four goals on 65 shots and 10 assists in 23 appearances. For the second straight season, Tarasenko will fail to reach the 65-point threshold, something he had achieved in five consecutive campaigns from 2014-19. If the Russian winger can avoid any further injuries, he should be capable of getting back to being a top producer next year.
Tarasenko (lower body) remains out Saturday against Minnesota, Jeremy Rutherford of The Athletic reports.
Tarasenko was a surprise scratch Thursday against the Wild, and evidently his injury will keep him out at least another game. With only 14 points in 23 games, fantasy managers shouldn't miss the former 40-goal-scorer's services too much.
Tarasenko (lower body) won't be in the lineup for Thursday's game against Minnesota.
It's unclear when the Russian suffered the injury, but it's serious enough to keep him out of the lineup in the thick of the playoff hunt. Tarasenko had been riding a two-game point streak, as he's racked up 14 points in just 23 games this season. Kyle Clifford will look to enter the lineup at forward, with Robert Thomas expected to shuffle up to the power-play unit with Tarasenko sidelined Thursday.
Tarasenko scored a power-play goal on two shots and added three hits in a 4-1 win over Colorado.
Tarasenko finished off a chance in the slot with the man advantage to open the scoring midway through the first period. The 29-year-old had been mired in a six-game goal drought coming into the night and Monday's tally was just his second on the power play in 22 games this season.
Tarasenko posted an assist and two shots on goal in Thursday's 4-2 loss to the Avalanche.
Tarasenko had the secondary helper on a Jaden Schwartz goal in the third period. The 29-year-old Tarasenko has a goal and three helpers in his last six games. The Russian winger is up to 12 points, 57 shots on net, 25 hits and a minus-6 rating through 20 appearances.
Tarasenko notched a power-play assist, two shots on goal and two hits in Wednesday's 4-3 loss to the Avalanche.
Tarasenko helped out on Mike Hoffman's second tally in the third period. The 29-year-old Tarasenko has racked up 11 points, 53 shots and 23 hits through 18 contests. The Russian winger has fit in well on the top line and should continue to produce solid scoring numbers down the stretch.
Tarasenko recorded an assist, two blocked shots and a plus-2 rating in Friday's 9-1 win over the Wild.
Tarasenko set up Jaden Schwartz's tally at 6:59 of the first period, which stood as the game-winner Friday. The 29-year-old Tarasenko has amassed three goals, seven helpers, 50 shots on net and a minus-6 rating through 16 games this season. He's only converting his shots at a 6.0 percent rate so far, which is well below his career rate of 12.7 percent.
Tarasenko scored a goal on five shots in Wednesday's 3-1 win over the Golden Knights.

The 29-year-old Tarasenko is up to nine points and 49 shots on net through 15 contests since entering the lineup after recovering from shoulder surgery.

Tarasenko set up David Perron's goal at 17:16 of the second period to get the Blues within one, but they couldn't tie the game.

Tarasenko scored a power-play goal and added an assist in Sunday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Ducks. He also provided five hits and four shots.
Tarasenko set up Ryan O'Reilly's goal just 2:27 into the opening period, then he overpowered Anaheim netminder Anthony Stolarz with a one-timer from the right circle later in the frame while on the power play. It was an overdue offensive performance for Tarasenko, who had entered the game with just one assist over his previous six contests. He's only found the net twice on 37 shots (5.4 percent) since making his season debut March 6, but his first-period howitzer certainly was a good sign.
