Blues Have Been Great as Road Dogs

After combining for 18 goals in the last two games, the Blues and Sharks will hit the ice tonight in San Jose with the Sharks looking to book their ticket to the Stanley Cup Final. A win would mark the first ever conference championship for the longtime underachieving Sharks who’ve won six division championships but have no playoff success to show for it.

Shark Bites
  • The Blues are 3-1 SU in their last four games on the road against the Sharks.
  • The Sharks are 1-4 SU in their last five games after a win.
  • The Blues are 5-2 SU in their last seven games after losing as a favorite.

The story of this series has been inconsistency. Over the last four games there’s been two shutouts, and two games where a team scored six goals. San Jose opened the day as a -159 home favorite, which is a spot they’ve performed well in during the playoffs, posting a 6-2 record. One of those losses was in the last game to St. Louis, however, as they were lit up in a 6-3 loss.

The Blues have actually fared extremely well as road underdogs, going 10-3 in their last 13 games in that spot. This includes winning three of their last four as road dogs in the playoffs where they outscored the opposition 14-10.

Brian Elliott will get the nod in net for the Blues after Jake Allen allowed four goals on 25 shots in Monday’s loss. Elliott started the first three games of the series where he allowed seven goals on 69 shots. After recording shutouts in Game 2 and 3, Martin Jones will be tasked with keeping the door shut for the Sharks.
