The St. Louis Blues struck first blood against their rivals in the Western Conference finals of the 2016 NHL Playoffs. Yet, if there’s anything that can energize the San Jose Sharks, it’s blood. Will this loss send San Jose into a feeding frenzy? Or, will the Blues keep their cool and keep winning?
Either way, hockey fans better tune in to see San Jose play Game 2 of this playoff series at the Scottrade Center in St. Louis, Missouri on May 17. The Blues hope they still have the home field (home rink?) advantage to make the series 2-0, but San Jose wants to even up the score. The action kicks off at 8:00 P.M. EST so be ready for some thrilling action.
San Jose lost the first match with the blues, the first time they ever lost a Game 1 in the NHL Playoffs, according to SB Nation. The game ended 2-1, with Blues Captain David Backes, 32, Jori Lehtera, 28, each scoring a point. Tomas Hertl, 22, was the only Sharks player who was able to get the puck by Blues goaltender Brian Elliot, 31, who ultimately made 31 saves in the first match, per the St. Louis Post Dispatch.

The Sharks are the first team the Blues have faced that can match their heavy play along the boards, per SB Nation, which resulted in a low-scoring and very physical game. The Sharks will probably look to get ahead early in this game, so be prepared by getting an official San Jose t-shirt here.
“We’ve got to score. Got to score more than one goal,” Sharks head coach, Peter DeBoer, 47, said after the Game 1 loss, according to ESPN. “Got to find a way. This time of year, you’re not going to win games with one goal. I think the goals were there tonight, and we just didn’t stick them in.”
The Blues won’t give up Game 2 without a fight — literally. David Backes delivered 11 hits to his opponents during the night, which is the most ever in a single game in the franchise’s history. Will David’s hard-hitting style knock out another win or will the Sharks leave St. Louis feeling black and blue?
