Vladimir Tarasenko Talks

from Tom Timmermann of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch,

Blues forward Vladimir Tarasenko looked back on the playoffs on Tuesday, particularly on his series against San Jose, where he was held goalless until the final nine minutes of the final game, and felt he needed to do more.

"They played really tight and they backchecked so hard," Tarasenko said. "It's just experience. It was frustrating for me. I wish I could do better. I'm supposed to do better."...

"I wouldn't say I wasn't frustrated," Tarasenko said. "Of course I was a little bit mad. ... It's no time for frustration. Even if you don't score and the team wins, everybody helps. Now I have a lot of time to think about my game, look at my shifts and find out what's wrong. But when a team is winning, you don't even think about your points. It's nothing better when come into the room after a hard game, whether you score or not score, and you see those happy faces around you, your friends, really happy. You can't think about something else."

Tarasenko dismissed a report out of Canada about issues between him and the organization.
