Coach Ken Hitchcock also says forward Patrik Berglund will not play in Game 1 on Thursday night. He had no update on Oshie, who missed practice Wednesday.

Tarasenko is returning about two weeks ahead of schedule.

"He deserves an awful lot of credit. He's worked extra hard to be in the best shape of his life," coach Ken Hitchcock said after the morning skate.

The Blues got several other players back from injuries. Forwards David Backes, Vladimir Sobotka and Brenden Morrow and defensemen Barret Jackman and Alex Pietrangelo all missed the regular season finale.
