Winning Streak Hits Eight For The St. Louis Blues

from Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch,

The beat goes on for the Blues. Another night, another victory — eight in a row — which is their longest winning streak in 16 years.

More goals for Vladimir Tarasenko. He had two goals in Thursday’s 4-0 victory over Arizona, giving him 12 in his last 17 games and 24 for the season. But who’s counting? He isn’t.

“I got away a little this season from counting the goals and things, because of the start, and I just try to enjoy the game,” Tarasenko said. “Obviously, I’m not gonna lie. It feels nice it’s going in, and it feels more nice helping the team win.”

More winning by Binnington. Jordan Binnington made history with his seventh consecutive victory, matching the franchise record for a rookie goalie set by Brent Johnson during the 2000-01 season.

“That’s a nice thing to hear, I guess,” Binnington said. “I’m more excited about the direction the team’s heading, how disciplined we’re being and selfless. It’s fun to be a part of the team right now.”


Game highlights are below.
