Watch: Tarasenko Hit Awkardly by Horcoff, Goes Down



Blues' star center Vladimir Tarasenko was the victim of a questionable hit late in the second period against the Ducks on Thursday. Watch as No. 91 slides the puck up the near side before getting tagged awkwardly by Horcoff. It appears that the hit is a little late, and it also appears that Horcoff gets him high and also with his right knee.

Tarasenko would go to the dressing room, missing a few shifts, but he was back in action for the third stanza. Twenty seconds after the hit, the Blues' Steve Ott came to blows with Corey Perry. Here's that snippet for those who enjoy their fisticuffs.



The Blues got the win, 2-1, and Tarasenko finished with a goal (his 6th) in 18:01 of ice time.
