San Jose stole Game 5 in St. Louis thanks to an impressive offensive display.
They now return home with a chance to clinch a spot in the Stanley Cup in front of their fans.
San Jose Sharks
The Sharks have not allowed the Blues to gather any moment in this series.
Following both Blues wins, the Sharks turned in up in the following game and grab a win. This time, they avenged a 6-3 loss with a 6-3 win as they flipped the script on St. Louis.
San Jose used 3 third period goals to propel themselves to the win as this offense has flourished here in the postseason.
The story of this series has been quality over quantity for the Sharks. They had just 27 shots on goal in Game 5, but managed to find the back of the net on 6 of them.
Martin Jones was stellar despite the 3 goals has he turned away 18 of the 21 shots faced.
St. Louis Blues
St. Louis inability to hold a lead has really hurt them this series.
The Blues led 2-1 after 1 period, but coughed that lead up in the 2nd period and couldn’t produce anything in the 3rd. They managed just 21 shots despite the frantic pace both teams played with.
The good news for St. Louis here is that they have proven many times already this postseason that they can go on the road and steal a game. Ask the Stars about that, as the Blues took them out in Game 6 last round in an elimination game.
Brian Elliot will be the key here. He’s allowed 9 goals combined out of the last 2 games, which is very unorthodox for him. Elliot has been extremely reliable all postseason long, but has allowed a few easy goals in the past few games.
