Edmonton Oilers goalie Ben Scrivens stops a shot from St. Louis Blues forward Jori Lehtera during Friday’s National Hockey League game at the Scottrade Center in St. Louis.
Tarasenko scores the winner with 40 seconds left in overtime
St. Louis — It was another knife to the heart for the dogged Edmonton Oilers, who killed a Mark Fayne tripping penalty in overtime only to see gifted St. Louis Blues winger Vladimir Tarasenko score with 40 seconds left Friday night. Tarasenko, the emerging super talent, stickhandled past Oilers defenceman Justin Schultz, cut quickly and ripped a shot over Ben Scrivens’ blocker as the goalie went down on the 41st shot by the Blues for a 4-3 St. Louis victory at the Scottrade Center.
