Ken Hitchcock just threw the number out there off the top of his head.
Of course, the St. Louis Blues coach has so much information packed into that head, maybe it shouldn't be that surprising.
But when talking recently about his offensive leader, right wing Vladimir Tarasenko, Hitchcock made an observation about Tarasenko's scoring tendencies that appeared to be an estimate.
"Those goals he scores, even if there's just 30 or whatever, I guarantee you two-thirds of them will be important goals again," Hitchcock said. "That's critical for us."
And that's bad news for the Chicago Blackhawks, who will host the Blues in this week's Wednesday Night Rivalry game (8 p.m. ET; NBCSN, TVA Sports).
