04:30 PM ET 04.30 | T.J. Oshie will be in the lineup for the St. Louis Blues against the Los Angeles Kings in Game 1 of the Western Conference Quarterfinal on Tuesday night. Oshie missed all of April due to his need to have surgery on what turned out to be a stress fracture. With Oshie coming back into the lineup, head coach Ken Hitchcock has decided to sit rookie forward Vladimir Tarasenko. The head coach explained he views the opening of the playoffs as a place for veterans to display their desire to win. He believes Tarasenko will have a chance to play this postseason but did not indicate when that would happen.

Good deal, and a good move by Hitch. Tarasenko has done little since coming back from his concussion.

Should be an interesting series...

Maybe and am glad to see Oshie back in as I like his style. But don't leave the Russian out long, then tend to sulk.

1st period. Kings/Blues more entertaining. Bacstrom hurt during warmup for the Wild. Case of the trots?

Blues & Kings are both big, tough and play a similar style, should be a good series! Plus they have some playoff history between them.

Backstrom hurt in the warm-up, Harding in, I'm sure the fans in Minnesota aren't wild about that development.

The Hawks-Wild series might not be. The first game was one slow, boring affair. Trap, trap, trap and more trap.
