I don't want to either, but he had no idea what planet he was on. If there was ever a time that I could say somebody was concussed, I'd say it was this one.

How does nobody stand up for Tarasenko after he takes that hit?! I'd love to know that none of my teammates have my back.

I think people need to relax about Tarasenko's injury until we at least hear what it is.

I was nervous seeing Halak tonight but he played great..

as long as he plays to the No. 1 goalie he can be, the Blues are in great position

I was pleased by Berglund's play late in the 3rd. Was aggressive towards the net and used his big frame to set up chances.

Yes I do, but that was also right before the NHL's crackdown on head shots idt they had the "dark room" or whatever then. All I'm saying is his look after the hit + previously suffering a concussion in the KHL this year, I wouldn't expect him back for a couple weeks at least.

Blues need a big, confidence boosting win on Saturday.

I was pleased with Halak tonight. But he doesn't sell the cool saves quite as convincingly as Allen.

That wasn't a concussion.

I'd say most players probably thought it was a bad luck play as opposed to a vicious cheap shot (and I'd agree with them). Also, tight game in the 3rd period.

No way that isn't a concussion, Tarasenko didn't know what planet he was on after that hit. It's frustrating to see a plug like Olver potentially end Tarasenko's season though. Just move on to the next game, if we have that many chances every game we'll be fine the rest of the season.

The quiet room isn't mandatory for head shots anymore, IIRC.

You can get knocked out or dazed without it being a concussion.

Tarasenko looked completely lost after he got hit. My prediction is he'll be out for a bit.

It is what it is though, I'm not that pissed about it. Hockey's a fast game, it was just a hockey play...big hit. Unfortunate, but that's part of the game. No use in getting all mad about it...

Really? I could've sworn he had one that's my mistake in that case. I'm still pessimistic about his injury though, after the Perron, Steen, and to a lesser extent McDonald expiriences I'm not very hopeful.

They initially diagnosed him with a concussion, but later they said it wasn't. He was held out for a couple of games as a precaution, but it wasn't serious.

It seemed like Berglund was out there for 60 minutes!

Perron, Oshie and Stewart played well. Amac is terrible this year. He looks like he's toast.

Agreed, Amac has not impressed me at all this season. It's like he lost his ability to pass.

I just want to know how we don't score a single goal on quite possibly the worst team in the league.

I think it's too much hockey too quickly for Andy Mac. His game is predicated on speed, and when he's playing 3 games in 4 nights consistently throughout the season, he's just running on fumes. I think platooning with D'Ags every few games would be good for him. Well, if Tarasenko is out for an extended period of time, then he won't have anyone to platoon with I guess.

Looks like dags might be getting some time. Need Schwartz to step up big time.
