  • Stanley Cup Playoffs Buzz: Blues face depleted Sharks, look to win West

The Sharks will look to recover in St. Louis on Tuesday to force a Game 7 for the third straight series, but they could be without several important players. Not only did Schwartz notch his hat trick with two more goals in the third, but Binnington also contributed with four saves in the period.

But here they are.

San Jose clearly only has Karlsson in its short-term plans for the time being. The rookie netminder - with the help of the posts - held the Sharks scoreless at 5-on-5 in Game 4, turning this series into a Best-of-3. The St. Louis Blues are averaging 2.8 goals per game and are scoring on 16.7 percent of their power play opportunities.

That kind of turnaround sounds like a cheesy movie of the week, but it's the scenario before the St. Louis Blues after they blasted the host San Jose Sharks 5-0 Sunday afternoon to take a 3-2 lead in the Western Conference finals. San Jose lost all three stars to injuries during a 5-0 loss at home to the Blues on Sunday that left them trailing the best-of-seven series 3-2 headed into Tuesday night's game.

They look far closer to getting there than the score in this series indicates. The Sharks have relied on their offense to win games all year, but teh offense is struggling at the moment and that creates a huge problem for them as they just don't have the goaltending to overcome bad offense. "It would be a dream come true". Just not necessarily in the way that was expected.

San Jose stormed back from a 3-1 series deficit to beat Vegas in the opening round but the Sharks resemble a team coming apart and running on fumes.

The Spaniard said at his press conference: "It's bad news, but I can not do anything about this issue. "It's the kind of game that doesn't come along very often and I admit, it hurts a lot to miss it".

"It was an off-year obviously for him in the regular season", coach Craig Berube said. DeBoer said. "We make those decisions based on the reports we get from the player and the medical (staff). His hard work, being relentless and staying with it is paying off".

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. In his career, he has gone 5-4 with a 2.00 GAA against the Blues during the regular season.

Still, Sharks defenseman Brenden Dillon is optimistic about keeping the Western Conference finals going to an all-or-nothing Game 7 showdown Thursday. Kane has one assist and just 8 shots on goal in this series.

"Every time he gets the puck he puts them on edge", Blues center Ryan O'Reilly said. I really, really hate playoff day games when the team I'm following gets shelled, slammed and slaughtered. "Having played with him throughout the year, you see how risky he is whether it's taking that shot or just being that threat that opens so much up". Perhaps the players should take a page out of Joe Thornton's book, who is probably one of the dirtier players on that team, and keep your mouth shut. But with San Jose playing the shot, he found Schwartz cutting towards the net for a one-timer into a wide-open net. His hard work is paying off.

Jordan Binnington made save after save to pull off yet another playoff victory - and make some team history - for the Blues. The St. Louis Blues have won 12 of their last 19 games as a favorite.

Karlsson said he was good to go for Game 5, but that clearly wasn't the case. No matter how much ground the Sharks cover, they will never be able to catch up to St. Louis. "We'll enjoy it tonight, but we know there's a lot of work yet".
