It is not looking good for the St. Louis Blues. The Blues are having a tough time defending against fast-break goals and their penalty killing capability this post-season has been questionable. Blues Captain David Backes, 32, has gone over 8 periods since his last goal and he is feeling the playoff pressure. The Blues will be looking to shift momentum in the series and tie everything up at 2 before they head back home for game 5.
The Sharks however are firing on all cylinders. They have been going with a line that works well and they seem to be able to score at will. Martin Jones, 26, the guy going to work protecting the goal for the Sharks, is having an epic series. As long as he continues to shut out the Blues, he may be able to carry the Sharks to the promise land. This playoff season the Sharks closed down the Kings in 4 and went the distance with the Predators winning that series in 7. The winner of this series will see either the Penguins or the Lightning in the Stanley Cup Finals.
