3. Time for the Tarasenk-show

Newly acquired Vladimir Tarasenko has wasted no time in cementing himself as a very solid addition to this already very skilled Florida Panthers lineup. In eight games as a member of the Florida Panthers, Tarasenko has netted 3 goals (including the game winning goal against the Flyers last night) and 1 assist for a total of 4 points.

Tarasenko has long been praised around the league for his pure goalscoring ability. He has meshed well in the Panthers lineup so far, and has proven effective at adjusting to Paul Maurice's complete two-way system and has even adjusted to playing on his off-wing.

Once Tarasenko gets fully settled in, which is set to happen any day now, even more goals will come. As the Panthers turn a corner here in the coming days, look for Vladimir Tarasenko to do the exact same.
