St. Louis Blues’ sniper Vladimir Tarasenko scored twice in the first period to give the Blues a 2-0 lead.

The 23-year-old opened the scoring tipping home an Alex Steen feed at 13:18 for his first of the playoffs.

Less than five minutes later, Tarasenko caught Devan Dubnyk off the post just enough to sneak a shot short side on the Wild starter.

Steen and defenseman Kevin Shattenkirk have the assists on both goals.
