Blues spoil Tarasenko’s return with 3-2 OT win over Rangers

At this point, it’s all about trying to end the season on a high note.

And that’s what they did Thursday against the Rangers, as Kasperi Kapanen scored 1:16 into overtime to help the St. Louis Blues beat the New York Rangers 3-2 on Thursday night.

Kapanen took a pass from Brayden Schenn to score his 15th goal of the season for St. Louis, which has won two in a row.  Tyler Pitlick and Alexey Toropchenko also scored for the Blues, and goalie Jordan Binnington made 21 saves. Despite being eliminated from playoff contention for the first time since 2017-18, the Blues showed a lot of grit and fight.

In his return to St. Louis for the first time since the Blues traded him to New York on Feb. 9, Vladimir Tarasenko scored a game-tying goal at one-all with a power-play goal early in the third period. He also notched an assist in the game.
