Sharks are a Poor Bet on the Road

The St. Louis Blues ended their offensive drought in Game 4 of the Western Conference finals, but they'll need to keep up that pace to counter the powerful San Jose Sharks offense. With the series tied at two games apiece, Game 5 gets underway in Missouri on Monday.

Shark Bites
  • The Blues are 1-3 SU in their last four games as favorites.
  • The Sharks are 7-1 SU in their last eight games after a loss.
  • The Sharks are 1-4 in their last 5 road games.

Blues’ goaltender Jake Allen will receive his second consecutive start after stepping up in Game 4. The netminder took over for a struggling Brian Elliott and made 31 saves in St. Louis’ 6-3 triumph. Martin Jones will start in the crease for the Sharks.

At this point in the year it’s normal for players to be banged up, but St. Louis is singing the blues in that department right now. Captain David Backes and rookie forward Robby Fabbri suffered undisclosed injuries and missed a significant portion of ice time on Saturday, leaving their status for Monday in jeopardy. Head coach Ken Hitchcock told reporters he will decide if they will play on Monday.
