Welcome to the Gameday Blog, the one-stop shop for San Jose Sharks fans on every playoff gameday.
Good morning Sharks Territory! The Sharks host the Blues for Game 5 of the Western Conference Final at SAP Center this afternoon.
It's a best of three series now as the teams are tied at two wins apiece. Last game, the Blues took an early 2-0 lead in the first. Martin Jones and Sharks held tight and played a dominant third period but ultimately fell short, 2-1. Tomas Hertl scored the Sharks lone goal which was his first of the series, and 10th playoff goal this season.
Team Teal hopes to use Home Ice Advantage to their benefit today and earn the Game 5 win before heading back to St. Louis for Game 6.
