(KSDK Sports) -- The Blues will get one of their stars back as they open the Stanley Cup Playoffs against the Los Angeles Kings. Ken Hitchcock announced that T.J. Oshie is a go for game 1 and rookie Vladimir Tarasenko will be a healthy scratch.

Oshie will be on a line with David Perron and Patrik Berglund.

Oshie missed all of April with an injured ankle that required surgery. Oshie had 7 goals and 13 assists in 30 games this season.

Game 1 is tonight at 7:00pm at the Scottrade Center. The Blues were swept by the Kings in the second round of last year's playoffs.
