San Jose Sharks: Previewing the St. Louis Blues series

Colorado vs. San Jose Prediction, Preview, and Odds - 5-8-2019

The only difference for the Colorado series was that captain Joe Pavelski was unable to play after suffering a nasty looking head injury in that previous Game 7.

The Colorado Avalanche won game six of this series by a score of 4-3 in OT to stave off elimination and force a game seven in this best-of-seven series. He scored the first goal and assisted on Tomas Hertl's goal as the Sharks advanced to their fourth conference final this decade. It took a whole team effort to beat the Avs in seven games without their captain. The Sharks move on to the Western Conference final and will open the series on Saturday against the St. Louis Blues.

Both teams were able to overcome their respective adversities and are now squaring off in the Western Conference Final for the first time since 2016.

In Round 2, Jones has been largely mediocre but that's totally fine because so has his counterpart, Philipp Grubauer.

Pavelski took less than six minutes to provide more than just inspiration. After demolishing the Flames, the Avs have posted better expected goals (51.2%) and high-danger scoring chance rates (54.4%) against the Sharks at 5-on-5.

A dazed Pavelski was helped off the ice by his teammates and then had eight staples put in his head to stop the bleeding.

Instead, San Jose led 2-1 and shortly thereafter pushed their lead to 3-1, enjoying a massive momentum swing Colorado couldn't come back from.

It was a series of great contrasts, the young, quick and exciting Avalanche against the establishment: veterans such as Pavelski and Joe Thornton, the quiet brilliance of Logan Couture (second in playoff goal scoring only to Alexander Ovechkin since 2010), solid defence in the likes of Brent Burns, Erik Karlsson and Marc-Édouard Vlasic.

The Sharks got a scare when, up 2-1 in the second period, Colin Wilson scored what looked like a game-tying goal on a handsome cross from Nathan MacKinnon.

One more update: Here is the official explanation for the ruling on the play: "After reviewing all available replays and consulting with the Linesman, the Situaion Room determined that Gabriel Landeskog did not legally tag up at the blue line prior to the puck entering the offensive zone".

In addition, all Sharks home playoff games will include a Spanish language audio broadcast. For me, I usually side with the home team in game one, as it's the only real advantage you have until you get a feel for the series.

On Jan. 2, the St. Louis Blues found they had stumbled, slipped and fallen to dead last in the National Hockey League - worse, even, than the terrible and dysfunctional Ottawa Senators. Martin Jones had a bad regular season for the Sharks and struggled early in the playoffs against Vegas before catching fire late in that series and continuing that play into Round 2.
