Louis vs. San Jose Prediction, Preview, and Odds

"We've got enough guys in here that have played do-or-die games", Dillon said, via the San Jose Mercury News.

"It's a great spot to be in", coach Peter DeBoer said Saturday.

Another stat to go along with the first is San Jose being 1-7 with a minus-10 goal difference in even numbered games. In fact, the Sharks dominated the second period with a 23-8 shot attempt advantage but the puck wouldn't bounce their way. But it seems that all momentum could have changed hands last night as St. Louis Blues fans are comparing the ending of Game 3 to "the worst hand job they've ever received" after what appeared to be a blatant hand pass leading to the Sharks game winning tally. I think we got better.

In Game 7 against Colorado, a coach's challenge from San Jose resulted in Colorado's apparent game-tying goal in the second period being overturned. Later on, Haley was given a game misconduct for going after Pietrangelo.

"We're going to go into a tough building, but we feel confident going in there".

EK was in visible pain on the bench near the end of the first period, and managed to play just over three minutes in the second before deciding not to return for the third period. His giveaway and subsequent screen on goaltender Martin Jones can be pretty easily traced as the cause for the game's first goal, and served as a harbinger for an abbreviated appearance for Karlsson. They've been tasked with third pairing minutes with the expectation of limiting shots on Tuukka Rask.

Schwartz added two goals in the third for his second hat trick this postseason, becoming the first player with two in one playoff run since Johan Franzen for Detroit in 2008. Jones then swept it away but it went right to Schwartz, who knocked it into the open net.

Then, Tarasenko was tripped on a breakaway and was awarded a penalty shot with a chance to make it 3-0.

"The report was that he felt he could play and get through the game".

"I thought we had a good start, " center Logan Couture said. We've had emotional games for sure.

Midway through the third period, there were four players missing from the San Jose bench: Erik Karlsson's lower body injury left him unable to help, as St. Louis's physical investment in him finally paid off. Tomas Hertl didn't play in the third period, possibly the result of being clipped in the head during a collision with Ivan Barbashev in the first period.

DeBoer said there are no status updates on any of the four hurt players.

Jordan Binnington made save after save to pull off yet another playoff victory - and make some team history - for the Blues. They limited chances tonight.
