Blues coach Ken Hitchcock reportedly advised rookie Vladimir Tarasenko to "get ready to play" after Saturday's loss to the Kings.
Hitchcock would not commit to playing Tarasenko, who has been healthy scratch in the first three games of the series, in Monday's Game Four, however that appears a definite possibility. "I haven't gotten that far yet," Hitchcock said. "That's tomorrow's decision. I'll have to sleep on a lot of that stuff just to see what we need. I think he looks hungry and ready to play and I'm sure he's going to play well when he gets in. But you're not really sure if you want to screw around with the lineup right now when we're playing so well, so I've got to balance that out right now."
