Tarasenko's Hat Trick Lifts Blues Over Wild, Evens Series

Christian Ammann/iStock/Thinkstock(ST. LOUIS) -- Vladimir Tarasenko recorded his first career playoff hat trick to lead the St. Louis Blues past the Minnesota Wild 4-1 Saturday, evening their first-round series at a game apiece.

Tarasenko, who led the team in points and goals during the regular season, didn't have a shot on goal in the team's Game 1 loss.

"We need him to rise up," Blues head coach Ken Hitchcock said. "For us to have success, our best players have to be significant, and that was a big step today.

"We needed more of that and we got it."

Jake Allen made 24 saves and became the first rookie goalie to win a playoff game for the Blues since 1990.

St. Louis jumped to a quick 2-0 lead in the first period with Tarasenko scoring both goals.

The Wild got within one at the beginning of the third period when Marco Scandella scored on a slap shot.

St. Louis put the game out of reach with 1:58 remaining when Patrik Berglund created a turnover and then beat Wild goalie Devan Dubnyk.

The series now shifts to Minnesota. Game 3 will be played Monday night at 8 p.m. ET.
