The San Jose Sharks can wrap up the Western Conference finals by winning Game 6 on May 25, but the St. Louis Blues will do everything to fend off the shark attack. HollywoodLife.com wants you to see this epic NHL Playoff game so click to watch!
The song that’s been going through the heads of the St. Louis Blues players hasn’t been “Crossroads” or “Smokestack Lightning.” It’s been the theme to Jaws, as the San Jose Sharks have been making a meal out of their competition! With elimination so close, can the Blues survive?
St. Louis will try to avoid elimination in the NHL Western Conference finals when they roll into the SAP Center in scenic San Jose, California on May 25. It’s Game 6, and with the Sharks leading the series, 3-2, they just need one more victory to punch their ticket to the Stanley Cup finals. With victory so close the Sharks can taste it, this is going to be good. So, after getting your mouth watering with these hockey hunks, be ready when the game kicks off at 9:00 P.M. EST.
St. Louis must feel like they’re Bill Murray, 65, and caught in a weird version of Groundhog’s Day. They won Game 4, 6-3, but the Sharks repaid the favor, taking Game 5 with a score of 6-3. In order to make it to Game 7, Blues coach Ken Hitchcock, 64, announced that veteran goaltender Brian Elliot, 31, will replace Jake Allen, 25, in the net, per ESPN. “These are Brian’s playoffs. We’d like to see him finish the job,” Ken said. “I think he’s going to be great.” If you think St. Louis can do it, show your pride by getting an official Blues t-shirt.
Brian might not be much help against Chris Tierney, 30, who has four goals in the last seven games. Plus, both Joel Ward, 35, and Joe Pavelski, 31, scored two goals each in the last game. If they team up with Marc-Edouard Vlasic, 29, this game might turn into a feeding frenzy in front of the Sharks’ hometown. If you think San Jose is going all the way, get an official Sharks hat here.
Winning this game “would be huge,” Sharks forward Patrick Marleau, 36, told CBS News. “It’s something I’ve always wanted to do here for the fans and the Bay Area. They have been supporting us over the years and they deserve it.” The Sharks are one win away for making their first appearance in the Stanley Cup final since they became a franchise in 1991.
Vladimir Tarasenko, 24, Jay Bouwmeester, 32, and Kevin Shattenkirk, 27, will be in the lineup for the Blues. This is their third elimination game of the NHL playoffs, as St. Louis overcame the Chicago Blackhawks and the Dallas Stars. Will they make it 3-0 or will these great whites snack on some Blues?
Who do you think will win, HollywoodLifers?
