Sharks hammered at home

San Jose was shut out 5-0 at home Sunday afternoon in Game 5 of the Western Conference Finals against St. Louis. The Sharks trailed 1-0 through one period and 3-0 through 40 minutes before the Blues added a pair of insurance goals in the third period to add to the Sharks' misery. Martin Jones surrendered five goals on 40 shots in the defeat. San Jose had 21 shots on goal in the defeat with Marc-Edouard Vlasic and Gustav Nyquist leading the way with three shots each. 

Blues roll in Game 5

St. Louis dominated Game 5 to the tune of 5-0 Sunday afternoon in a 5-0 victory at San Jose to take a 3-2 series lead. Oskar Sundqvist put the Blues on the board at the 14:10 mark of the first period on an unassisted goal. Jaden Schwartz pushed it to 2-0 at the 16:50 mark of the second period on another unassisted goal. A third unassisted goal by Vladimir Tarasenko less than four minutes later extended the St. Louis lead. Schwartz pushed it to 4-0 on the power play 2:11 into the third period with assists going to David Perron and Tarasenko. Schwartz gave himself a hat trick with 3:58 left on his third goal of the contest off assists by Tarasenko and Brayden Schenn. Jordan Binnington recorded the shutout with 21 saves on 21 shots.

NHL Betting Trends

San Jose

The Sharks are 45-20 in their last 65 Tuesday games. San Jose is 3-7 in its last 10 road games.

St. Louis

The Blues are 18-7 in their last 25 home games. The home team is 7-3 in the last 10 meetings.


St. Louis has been on a mission since an awful start to the season and that all showed in Sunday's impressive victory on the road. Now back home, expect the Blues to put the clamps down behind the better goaltender in this series. Binnington might be a rookie, but there is plenty enough evidence and sample size by now to realize he is the real deal. St. Louis usually doesn't need a lot of goals to support him, but look for another three or four goals from its offense here on its way to the Stanley Cup Finals for the first time in 49 years.
