Blue(s) Note(s) As The Sharks, (We Have Notes On Them As Well) Lead (2-1)l

May 17, 2019

Tonight in St. Louis, the home team, Blues will attempt to even their NHL semi-final series, vs the San Jose Sharks.

Logan Couture, who has been brilliant and leads NHL ‘offs goal scorers with 14, tied game 3 with a goal in the last minute, before Erik Karlsson’s disputed goal, his second of the game, won it for the Sharks, who have home advantage and a (2-1) series lead.

San Jose 6’d the Blues in the ’16 semis, the only time in the team’s 26 completed seasons, in which they made the NHL final. Pittsburgh (Penguins) 6’d them in the subsequent final series, winning the first of back to back crowns.

The Blues have not made the NHL final series since making them in their first 3 seasons, all as a member of the expansion NHL West, whose winner was granted a final series berth automatically.

St. Louis had some gallant efforts, but lost all 12 of its final series games (’68-’70).

They have lost in their 4 semis since that time, all in a different number of games— in 4 straight to the eventual champion, Boston Bruins in ’72, in 5 to the eventual champion, Colorado Avalanche in ’01, in 6 to the Sharks who as cited above lost the ’16 final series to the Penguins and in 7 to the Calgary Flames in ’86. Montreal (Canadiens) won the ’86 final series vs Calgary.
