For Game 2 of the Western Conference Final, the San Jose Sharks called on a hype man who knows a thing or two about beating teams from St. Louis.

Bruce Bochy, the three-time World Series champion manager of the San Francisco Giants, opened the locker room door for the Sharks before they took on the St. Louis Blues.

Bochy has defeated the St. Louis Cardinals twice en route to World Series championships and has a 3-0 playoff-series record against teams from Missouri.

Wielding a hockey stick and wearing a personalized No. 15 Sharks jersey, Bochy used his off day to fire up the crowd at SAP Center.

Bochy became the second straight Bay Area baseball luminary to lead the Sharks on the ice, but he wasn't the only celeb in the house for Game 2.

Rapper and actor E40 also took a turn getting the fans going.
