ST. LOUIS - Vladimir Tarasenko scored just 12 seconds into Friday's game against the Anaheim Ducks to reach the 30-goal mark for the third consecutive season.
Tarasenko becomes the first Blue to score at least 30 goals in three straight seasons since Keith Tkachuk accomplished the feat from 2001-04.
The 25-year-old forward is tied for seventh in the NHL in goals, just four behind Pittsburgh's Sidney Crosby, who leads the League with 34.
This season, Tarasenko has scored five multi-goal games tying a career high for the second time.
Through 65 games this season, Tarasenko leads the Blues in goals, assists (28) and points (58).
