Vladimir Tarasenko scored a one-handed, highlight-reel goal against the Wild, a mirror image of the Blues forward's goal against the Rangers earlier this season.

If Vladimir Tarasenko's second period goal against the Wild looked familiar, that's because it was.

His second goal of the game, in the midst of a six-goal outburst by the Blues, was a dazzling deke that Minnesota goalie Devan Dubnyk was powerless to stop. It was also the same move he used against Rangers goalie Cam Talbot in December, a move SI deemed the top goal of 2014.

St. Louis tied the first round series a 6-1 win over the Wild, with the six goals against are the highest the total Minnesota has allowed since January 13th, the same day Dubnyk was acquired, and the most the team has ever allowed in a postseason game.

Game 5 will take place on Friday at 9:30 p.m. ET in St. Louis.
