Video: Blues get two beauty goals in the shootout to top Jets

Feb 8, 2014, 5:46 PM EDT

The St. Louis Blues go into the Olympic break on a winning note, thanks to a 4-3 shootout victory over the Winnipeg Jets in a battle of Central Division teams on Saturday.

The Blues got a pair of beautiful goals in the shootout from T.J. Oshie and Vladimir Tarasenko. Those two players have been clutch for St. Louis in the skills competition this season.

Tarasenko, the talented 22-year-old Russian forward, is three-for-five in the shootout, while Oshie has been perfect on home ice in this aspect. He’s four-for-four in St. Louis, and 7-for-10 on the season.

St. Louis improved to 15-0-1 against divisional opponents. Blues coach Ken Hitchcock passed Scotty Bowman into sole possession of fourth place for all-time franchise victories with 111.

    Oshie’s goal was great, but Tarasenko’s goal wasn’t really ‘beautiful’…nice shot, but not that big of a deal.

    Too many OT’s and SO’s. Who are we, the Blackhawks?

    Oh well. Good win and hopefully they come back from Olympic break with some new ideas for the power play…

    Nice Win Blue Notes !

    however it’s going to take a lot more than ‘pretty’ goals if you people are to have even a ‘chance’ against us Kings come playoff time ! :)

      It’s gonna take the Kings to put at least one in if they want a chance to win!! lol

        Judge: Counsel for the Truth, would you like to respond to Pfhockey ?

        Blomfeld: Yes I would your honor … thank you

        Judge: You’re very welcome Counsel

        Blomfeld: Pfhockey, kindly explain to the court what exactly happened on Dec 10, 2013 ?

        Pfhockey: Um … like the Kings beat the Canadiens by a score of 6-0 ?

        Blomfeld: Thank you. Your honor, we’ve no further questions at this time.

        Judge: Very well then. The court deems the LA Kings to be a scoring machine !

        Hmmm, Interesting. I feel that Sutter has something to do with the Kings lack of scoring, I ddon’t even know how you can doubt it. They are a great team but go through the same scoring droughts constantly. Ifeel they need to splash a trade for a scoring winger.

      It will take A pretty goal…
