T. J. Oshie was back in the Blues lineup on Thursday night and helped St. Louis to a 4-3 win over Nashville. Oshie scored the game’s first goal just three minutes into the game to get the Blues going. Carl Gunnarsson scored his first goal with the Blues to make it a 2-0 game. The Predators then scored two goals to tie the game. Vladimir Tarasenko scored his tenth goal of the season to give the Blues a 3-2 lead. Nashville again tied the game. But it was Paul Stastny who supplied the game winning goal in the third period.

The win gives the Blues an NHL Central division best record at 11-4-1, good for 23 points. Blues head coach Ken Hitchcock is very happy to get Oshie back from the concussion injury that caused him to miss the past seven games.
