ST. LOUIS, March 23, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- St. Louis Blues forward Vladimir Tarasenko joined hockey greats Kelly Chase and Darren Pang on their weekly show, Chasen Pucks With Panger on NHLPodcast.com, to discuss his recent surge and the Blues' path to the Stanley Cup Playoffs. "This is the part of the year where you are practicing and playing for the playoffs," Tarasenko said. "We have one goal: bring a Cup to St. Louis. I don't think there is any reason to play this game unless you have the highest goals."
To overcome a season fraught with injuries to many key players, the Blues have relied heavily on the strength of their goaltending. Tarasenko reiterated the importance of dominance in the net, noting, "I think that more than 50% of our success has been because of our goalies...it gives you more chances to win games."
Chase and Pang's weekly podcast has rapidly become one of the most talked-about and listened-to hockey shows online. With guests ranging from Hall of Famers like Nick Lidström, Martin Brodeur and Adam Oates, to hockey legends like Stu Grimson and Eddie Olczyk, the show provides a truly behind-the-scenes look into the NHL.
