St. Louis Blues Even Up Conference Final Series Vs. San Jose Sharks With 4-2 Game 2 Win [VIDEO]

The San Jose Sharks don’t tend to deviate from the script. When faced with a 2-0 deficit after the St. Louis Blues found themselves firing on all cylinders, they turned to former ninth overall pick Logan Couture. The Canadian center found the back of the net twice within a two-minute span and tied up the game 2-2. That gave him an-NHL leading 13 goals in these Stanley Cup playoffs.

However, the Blues have lived on the edge for most of this postseason. In round two, they went to seven games against the Dallas Stars. So for fans, they were ready for a shock. That came when defenseman Robert Bortuzzo, who had scored only 14 goals in 365 regular seasons and playoff games, increased the score with his first career postseason goal.

“It’s not really my game but it’s something that goes in the back of your mind,” Bortuzzo said. “Jaden (Schwartz) will remember, I told him if I do score a playoff goal you’ll like the celebration. You never can plan what you’re going to do. It’s just a rush of emotion. It’s an intense game out there. That’s all it is, emotion coming to the surface.”

Bortuzzo made true on that prediction. He pumped his fist, yelled, and held his arms out to embrace his teammates.

Goalie Jordan Binnington made 23 saves in game two to even up the series. Besides Couture, San Jose couldn’t find anymore offense and lost 4-2.

“Pretty solid game tonight,” Binnington said. “We had a good start, we were disciplined. When they tied it up, we stayed composed. That’s really important, this time of year especially. We enjoyed the moment and competed hard until the end.”

In three series this postseason, the Sharks have lost three Game two’s after convincing wins to open up the series. These two teams will face off for Game three on Wednesday night in St. Louis.
