St. Louis Blues
Goaltender Jordan Binnington has been the front page story in sport four making 29 saves to register still another playoff success and also made some team history at the 2-1 win.
It had been playoff win number 10 to get Binnington, moving him past Brian Elliott (2016) and Roman Turek (2001) for the most wins with a Blues goalie in a single playoffs year. He’s the 10th rookie netminder to acquire at least 10 games in one postseason in league history.
The Blues power-play scored for a second straight game (in game four) and that is a good sign, since the team which had gone 0-for-18 together with the man advantage before scoring in game three.
San Jose Sharks
Game four did not start off well for the Sharks, as Ivan Barbashev gave the Blues the lead just 35 minutes into the game.
Tomas Hertl scored the team’s only goal of the game. This was his 10th of this post season, which is the second most goals scored by a play this post season. Team partner Logan Couture contributes with 15.
Ironically, Hertl’s goal snapped the Sharks‘ scoreless streak of 226 minutes, 48 minutes in Game 4’s this postseason after being closed out in the initial two rounds (Vegas/Colorado).
Keep a look out on defenceman Erik Karlsson in this game. In the end of game four Karlsson was in obvious distress midway through the third period. He missed a couple of shifts late in regulation time until he managed to return to the final two minutes, when the Sharks pulled goalie Martin Jones and made one last push.
