The Sharks need to win three in a row against the St. Louis Blues.
The Blues lost three games in a row two separate times during the regular season.
The Sharks won three games in a row a bunch of times during the regular season.
So it's possible, is what I'm saying. The Sharks can get rolling and win three in a row. Stranger things have happened.
1. The Blues are a really good defensive team.
2. Aside from the PK, the Sharks have played pretty well defensively in this series.
3. Antti Niemi has looked good enough in this series. Not stellar, but good enough.
4. The Sharks had trouble scoring all season long, and now are facing the opponent best able to exploit that weakness.
5. This sucks.
Prediction: The Sharks aren't going to score more than two goals, so if they want to win they'll need to give up 1 or 0. Sharks win 2-1.
