Very impressive bounce back win for SJS tonight. I sure hope this series goes to 7.

So long as it's nothing like the last couple of game sevens, sure.

Good comeback from SJS to even the series, but the Blues looked like crap on the PP and most of the game.

Oh boy, the Shreks look like they have St. Louis's number :(

I love trailing man plays (that NYR does not do enough of) so often leads to a shot from the slot and usually the pass is just far enough across Steve Valiequette's hershey highway, I mean Royal Road (http://www.blueshirtbanter.com/2015/1/6/7500845/video-breakdown-how-steve-valiquette-will-change-how-we-think-about) to make it difficult for the goalie. But the Sharks have made their shot count..

Another very impressive win by SJS. They're really coming into their own this post season. Is this finally the year where they shake off the choker label?

Was emphatic. You get the feeling this one is probably over early.

Martin Jones is now on a 140+ minutes of shutout hockey very impressive.

Where did this Martin Jones fellow show up from? Never even heard of this kid before.

Was backup to Jonathan Quick. Traded to Boston and then San José.

Hitchcock gave away any chance of the Blues coming back in the series by benching Elliot. Makes as much sense as the Russians benching Tretiak in 1980 against the US. You don't sit your best player.

Yea. He's been there best player. A goaltending change is NOT what they needed

Not sure what Elliot is supposed to do if the team doesn't score.

Blues with a nice statement win. Two goaltending "controversies" now in the Conference Finals? Fleury starting over Murray now and does Hitch stick with Allen or go back to Elliott?

Sharks outplayed St. Louis in 3 of the 4 games, but find themselves 2-2 going back on the road. It's gonna be maximum torture for Shark fans this year. Love it.

A fight to the end and big comeback by the Blues to tie up the series

Lt. Dan

Pavelski is the last person you want to leave open. Dude found room all throughout that power play.

Lt. Dan
05-23-2016, 10:17 PM
Pavelski again.

Lt. Dan
05-23-2016, 10:43 PM
Wow. Fucking blues just got completely out worked. In the third of all periods.

Pavelski reminds me of Drury circa 2006.

No way they're not winning this series.

The PPG at the end of the 2nd for the Sharks was the killer

Phil in Absentia
05-25-2016, 10:16 PM
I feel like a broken record, but Pavelski really is like 2006 Drury these playoffs. Total monster.

Good thing he isn't a UFA. If he were, he'd be a Ranger with like an $8M cap hit next season.

Another game seven blowout.

Glad the Sharks are gonna take this, though!

Karan

What a crushing performance by SJS tonight. They've completely shut Tarasenko right down! This is such a well oiled machine right now. It's their Cup to lose at this point...

Game 7? STL wishes! SJS has been really strong in elimination games this season though.

I'm so envious. I still haven't forgotten that feeling when we beat MTL in Game 6 and they announced that we'd be competing for the Stanley Cup. Incredible feeling...

"Unless the Sharks PP starts sucking all of a sudden, I don't see any team out West stopping them. Maybe the Blues, but I don't see anyone else being able to match them at this point. They are playing great hockey right now."

Posted this back in the Sharks/Kings thread, glad it all happened for them, and their PP never stopped being good. So happy for them, love that Pavelski is the one leading them through all of this, Merica baby! LOL. I said in the Bolts thread that I thought the East would win the Cup, but I will be 100% rooting for these guys!

To get through the West in only 18 games is a feat on its own as well. They finished series when they had the chance, unlike Sharks teams in the past. I wonder how much of that is Pavelski as Captain, or if this year was just the perfect storm of opponents. Either way, great run.

Only caught the end of the third last night. Didn't even want to watch it after I saw the score climb from 2-0 to 4-0.
Good for the Sharks.

Well dodging Dallas and Chicago was certainly helpful and the West is not as good as it was 2 years ago.

But, they are playing excellent hockey, hard to imagine any team would have beat them the way they just dismantled the Blues.
