Vladimir Tarasenko dished out a pair of assists on two of Jaden Schwartz's goals as well as scored a penalty shot goal, to secure a 5-0 victory over the San Jose Sharks Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Prior to the start of the Western Conference Finals, Tarasenko was fairly quiet, as he only was able to compile five points through 12 games played. Since then, he has managed to produce a point in all five games against San Jose so far (two goals, and five assists). He is a major reason for St. Louis's recent success and will look to have another productive outing this Tuesday to close out the series in six games.

Vladimir Tarasenko scored two goals on two shots for the Blues in the team’s 3-2 win over Dallas on Thursday. He has four goals and no assists in seven games this postseason.

Fantasy Impact: Tarasenko provided the offense for the Blues in this one, scoring a power-play goal at the end of the second period and adding an unassisted goal early in the third. Though he has disappointed a bit in the recent past, failing to surpass 70 points in either of the past two years, the 27-year-old sniper still possesses 40-plus goal upside with a heavy shot, quick release, and willingness to take a hit. There is some risk associated with Tarasenko, as his upside seems baked into his draft price, at least over the past several seasons.

Tarasenko was minus-9 during that stretch, according to Jeremy Rutherford on Twitter. He snuck a powerplay goal by the Edmonton netminder in the third period of Tuesday night’s game and he now leads the team in power play goals with six.

Fantasy Impact: The Schwartz-Schenn-Tarasenko line was on the ice for three of St. Louis’s four goals and the reuniting of this line could help Tarasenko out of his recent struggles. He has a total of nine power play points and could hold some good value heading into Vancouver, a team ranked third in penalty minutes per game at 10:04, according to NHL.com.
