Welcome to the Gameday Blog, the one-stop shop for San Jose Sharks fans on every playoff gameday.
The Sharks are back in action tonight for Game 2 of the Western Conference Final facing off against the St. Louis Blues.
On Saturday, the Sharks scored at least five goals in a Game 1 in the 2019 season for the third time, emerging with a 6-3 victory. Timo Meier (2g, 1a) and Logan Couture (2g, 1a) each registered a three-point night. Couture now has 11 goals in the playoffs, three shy of the franchise record of 14 in a single playoff run and Meier logged his first career multi-goal game in the postseason.
But while the Sharks are 3-0 in Game 1s this playoffs, they are 0-2 in Game 2 - a trend they look to avoid tonight. The Blues will definitely come out stronger and more desperate in Game 2, so the Sharks will have to prepare for that if they hope to maintain home ice advantage.
Not only is Team Teal in #PlayoffMode, but the entire organization and City of San Jose have also kicked it up a notch. If you aren't attending tonight's game, there are still plenty of ways for you to join in on the playoff festivities.
