Oshie in, Tarasenko out for Blues

St. Louis Blues coach Ken Hitchcock told reporters forward T.J. Oshie will be in the lineup for Game 1 of his team's Stanley Cup Playoff series Tuesday against the Los Angeles Kings (8 p.m. ET, CBNC, CBC).

Oshie missed the final 15 regular-season games following an injury to his left ankle during a March 28 game against the Kings. He had surgery April 16.

To open a spot, Hitchcock said rookie forward Vladimir Tarasenko will be a healthy scratch.

Quote of the Day

He scores 50 goals, they go in, they go in, and they go in. And I think, 'Why can't I do that?'
