Arianna's big birthday surprise
Tarasenko surprises an 11-year-old on her birthday
Vladimir Tarasenko had a surprise for Arianna's 11th birthday, he brought her to the locker room to tell her about it front of his teammates
ST. LOUIS - Ask Arianna Dougan what she wants for her 11th birthday and she'd probably say "nothing because I already got the best present I could ever ask for."
That's because her friend - Blues forward Vladimir Tarasenko - was the winning bidder on the most coveted item in the live auction at Casino Night last week: a trip for two on the team's charter to Arizona and Colorado in late March.
As it turns out, Tarasenko was bidding to win the trip for Arianna and her mom.
Stastny returns to lineup after missing four games
/ St. Louis Blues
ST. LOUIS - Paul Stastny skated in four consecutive days since suffering a lower-body injury in Toronto, and he feels like he's ready to return to the lineup tonight when the Blues host the Florida Panthers at 7 p.m. (FSMW, KMOX).
Stastny was hurt early in the second period on Feb. 9 after a collision with Maple Leafs forward Nazim Kadri. Blues Head Coach Mike Yeo said the injury wasn't serious, but the Blues placed Stastny on injured reserve to make room to recall Wade Megan from the Chicago Wolves.
Tonight marks the Blues' final game before the bye week. After today, the Blues will be off until Feb. 26, when they will visit the Chicago Blackhawks. The Blues have won seven of their last eight meetings with the Panthers, including three of the last four at Scottrade Center. The Blues, who are 11-4-1 all-time at home against the Panthers, are riding an epic penalty killing streak in this series. Dating back to March 2003, the Blues have killed 33 consecutive Panther power-play chances, and what's more, they have dispatched 66 of 70 since the Florida franchise was born. Tonight is the first of just four more Eastern Conference dates remaining on the Blues schedule, including this series' finale, on April 6 in Florida.
