CHICAGO (AP) — St. Louis Blues forward Vladimir Tarasenko has been ruled for their game at Chicago due to an upper-body injury.

Tarasenko got hurt in the first period of the Blues' 4-3 overtime victory against the New York Rangers on Saturday night. Coach Mike Yeo says he is day to day.

The 26-year-old Tarasenko leads St. Louis with 27 goals. The Blues are competing for a wild card in the Western Conference.

Yeo says Oskar Sundqvist will replace Tarasenko in the lineup against the Blackhawks.
