Postcards from the Czech Republic: Tarasenko has special message for Blues fans
Blues forward Vladimir Tarasenko’s focus has shifted from competing for a Stanley Cup with the Blues in the NHL to a gold medal with Team Russia at the IIHF Ice Hockey World Championships in the Czech Republic. But on Sunday he took time to deliver a special message to Blues fans back stateside.

Tarasenko, who led the Blues with six goals in the Western Conference quarterfinals against Minnesota, has three goals and an assist in five games for Russia.
Have a craving to see him work his magic one more time? Well, you’re in luck. He found the back of the net in Russia’s 3-2 overtime win over Slovakia on Sunday.
