St. Louis Blues 4, San Jose Sharks 2 (series tied 1-1)




ST. LOUIS 4, SAN JOSE 2 (SERIES TIED 1-1): Robert Bortuzzo’s first-ever career postseason goal at 16:34 of the second period helped lead the St. Louis Blues to a 4-2 win over the San Jose Sharks to even their Western Conference Final series at 1-1 Monday night at SAP Center of San Jose.

Bortuzzo’s goal came of a backhander that beat Sharks’ goalie Martin Jones to the upper left corner to give the Blues the lead back after having lost a 2-0 lead earlier in the second.

St. Louis scored first just 2:34 into the game when Jaden Schwartz scored off a wrist shot in the slot to give the Blues a 1-0 lead. St. Louis held the lead, then doubled it in the second on a goal from Vince Dunn off a slapper from the point that made it 2-0.

Logan Coture then scored twice in 1:59, the first off a breakaway while the Sharks were playing shorthanded, to tie the game and give San Jose crucial momentum, but Bortuzzo scored his clutch goal to silence a partisan San Jose crowd and give the Blues a 3-2 lead after two.

The St. Louis defense held the Sharks without a shot for a 18-minute span in the second and third periods, but when needed, Blues goalie Jordan Binnington came up big, and also got help from Bortuzzo, blocking a shot near the halfway point of the third that allowed Binnington to cover up.

Oskar Sundqvist then iced the game with 3:08 left in regulation, backhanding in an Alex Steen pass into the net to give the Blues their 4-2 win.

Binnington made 24 saves for St. Louis, who are now 6-2 on the road during the playoffs. Jones stopped 21 Blues shots, and now have lost Game 2 for the third straight series after taking each of the series’ openers against Vegas, Colorado and St. Louis.

Game 3 of the final is set for Wednesday night at Enterprise Center in St. Louis, with Game 4 to be played Friday night. Face-off times for both contests will be 7 p.m., with NBCSN televising both games.
