(TSX / STATS) -- ST. LOUIS -- The loudest cheers inside Scottrade Center on Tuesday night were for the St. Louis Blues' Vladimir Tarasenko, but this time the ovation had nothing to do with him scoring a goal.

Tarasenko came to the defense of teammate Brayden Schenn in the second period, getting into a fight with Edmonton's Matt Benning, which earned him the loud ovation.

The fight completed the second "Gordie Howe hat trick" of Tarasenko's career as he also scored two goals and assisted on two more to lead the Blues to an 8-3 rout of the Oilers.
