Blues’ Tarasenko out vs. Wild due to illness

Alex Steen scored the OT winner as the St. Louis Blues got by the Nashville Predators 4-3.

St. Louis Blues right wing Vladimir Tarasenko will miss a game Thursday night against the Minnesota Wild with a stomach ailment.

Tarasenko missed the morning skate and will sit for just the second time this season. His 22 goals are tied for second best in the NHL with Chicago’s Patrick Kane. Dallas’ Jamie Benn leads the league with 23 goals.

Tarasenko has six goals and six assists in his last 10 games.
