NHL honors Tarasenko as its second star of the week
A week after the NHL honored Binnington as its first star of the week, Tarasenko was named its second star.
Tarasenko, 27, is riding a career-best 12-game point streak after a week in which he tallied 10 points (four goals, six assists), which tied for the best in the league, and produced a +7 rating. He produced multiple points in all four games — which, of course, were all victories by the Blues, who have won 10 in a row.
The 27-year-old forward had three assists Feb. 12 against the Devils, two goals Feb. 14 against the Coyotes, a goal and an assist Feb. 16 against the Avalanche and a goal and two assists Feb. 17 against the Wild.
