Blues’ Oshie out, Tarasenko in for Game 1 vs. Blackhawks
ST. LOUIS — The St. Louis Blues have ruled out forward T.J. Oshie for their playoff opener against the Chicago Blackhawks, but Vladimir Tarasenko is set to return after missing 15 games with a broken thumb.
Coach Ken Hitchcock also says forward Patrik Berglund will not play in Game 1 on Thursday night. He had no update on Oshie, who missed practice Wednesday.
Tarasenko is returning about two weeks ahead of schedule.
