SJ: One NHL Apology Away From Breaking Record

Adjust Comment Print

There have been seven goals scored in the opening minute of playoff games this year, with three of them coming against San Jose - the most since the Boston Bruins allowed four during their Stanley Cup run in 2011. That is the key, but we do note that it is hard to keep this San Jose offense grounded for two games in a row. Coach Peter DeBoer didn't have an update on Karlsson after the game.

St. Louis Blues at San Jose Sharks: By the Numbers Each of the last two games were decided by just a single goal after the first two games had at least a two-goal margin of victory.Game 4 was the first of the series to play to the UNDER on the projected total of 5.5. The Sharks put a bunch of pressure on Jordan Binnington in Game 4 but just couldn't manage to break through as the Blues goaltender stopped 29 of 30 shots on net.

Ivan Barbashev scored unassisted:25 into the first period and Tyler Bozak added a power play goal later in the stanza.

In that 2013 Stanley Cup Final, that Game 1 was costly for the Boston Bruins. As the Sharks controlled play with their goalie pulled for an extra attacker, creating a parade of scoring chances, the Blues kept icing the puck as they clung to a one-goal lead.

But I mean we got a lot to play for: Obviously you never know when the first time is going to happen. The Warriors run also seemed to shake the Portland offense.

"It just kinda fired us up, gave us some extra fuel", Bozak said of the inglorious way his team was defeated in the third game.

Should the Bruins have had a 3-0 series lead by that time?

He's just the 10th rookie goalie in National Hockey League history to win 10 games in his first postseason, and he's now 11-2 with a 1.81 goals against average in games following a loss.

"There's a lot of emotion in the playoffs", Sharks captain Joe Pavelski said.

But a police source told AFP that "initial reports indicate that the rocket was sacked from an open field" in southern Baghdad . The US military command that oversees the Mideast confirmed the explosion and said there were no US or coalition casualties.

It was an impressive rebound from a crushing Game 3 loss when the Blues allowed the tying goal with 1:01 left in regulation and then the victor in overtime after the officials failed to see a hand pass by San Jose that set up Erik Karlsson's goal.

"Vlady is a good passer, he makes plays", Berube said. He allowed only a power-play goal to Tomas Hertl on the way to his franchise-record 10th win this postseason.

Karlsson missed all but six of the Sharks' regular-season games with leg and groin ailments. Brett Burns and Erik Karlsson have combined for six points in four games against St. Louis, and each have 16 points this postseason, three more than anyone on the Blues roster.

Following Game 3, our very own Daniel Coyle recommended grabbing the Blues at plus money and I see no reason to deviate from that recommendation. The series is now tied at 2-2 and the Blues will now be looking to take back home-ice advantage.
