St. Louis Blues ahead Vladimir Tarasenko was known as for taking part in with unlawful gear at an important juncture in Friday evening’s Four-Three time beyond regulation victory over the visiting Colorado Avalanche after selecting up teammate Colton Parayko’s stick in time beyond regulation.
Blues interim coach Craig Berube mentioned the penalty was known as as a result of the 6-foot-6 Parayko has an exemption to the NHL’s stick size rule. The 6-foot Tarasenko doesn’t.
“If it was someone else’s stick, say it was [Jaden Schwartz’s] stick, he may choose it up and use it,” Berube mentioned.
Ryan O’Reilly bailed out the Blues with a short-handed, breakaway winner 2 minutes, 5 seconds into time beyond regulation.
“I had no thought,” O’Reilly mentioned of the rule. “I believe our entire bench had no thought, however with the win tonight I do not assume we care. We received it performed.”
