ST. LOUIS - Pretty soon, we're going to need a 24/7 network to show all of these Tarasenk-show episodes.
With another multi-point performance (one goal, two assists) Sunday in Minnesota, Vladimir Tarasenko extended his point streak to a career-best 12 games, recording 11 goals and 11 assists in that span.
Tarasenko's hard work gained him recognition Monday as the NHL's Second Star of the Week. The day before, he recorded his 400th career point in just his 478th career game, becoming the fifth quickest player to record his first 400 points as a Blue.
In addition, Tarasenko has five consecutive multi-point games and is the first player to accomplish that feat since Doug Weight recorded multiple points in seven straight games in 2002.

Tarasenko leads the Blues in goals (26) and ranks second with 51 points. For the month of Feburary, he leads the entire League with nine goals and 19 points.
"He's our scorer, we all know that," said Blues Head Coach Craig Berube. "If you watch closely, he's working hard and doing a lot of good things, and that's contributing to scoring."
Tarasenko has now scored at least 20 goals in six straight seasons, becoming the sixth player in franchise history to achieve the milestone.
