Banged up Sharks rack up injuries in Game 5

Joe Thornton shows he’s not done just yet in monster performance in Sharks’ controversial Game 3 win

However, it's fair to say that his performances don't instil a ton of confidence and you'd rather not see the St. Louis Blues or San Jose Sharks bearing down on him. He's the first St. Louis goalie with a postseason shutout since Brian Elliott made 35 saves in a 1-0 overtime win against the Chicago Blackhawks in Game 1 of the 2016 Western Conference First Round. The Sharks will look to recover in St. Louis on Tuesday to force a Game 7 for the third straight series, but they could be without several important players. San Jose threatened a little in the latter stages of the first period, but the Blues punished them more and more with every hit and every goal.

"I liked our first period, " coach Peter DeBoer said. Game 6 in St. Louis might be the most hard one this franchise has had to play in decades, if not ever.

Whether the hit was the reason Hertl was missing from the Sharks' bench in the third period is still unknown. In Game 4, he sat out for most of the third period as well.

The Colorado Avalanche were offside (but were they?) in Game 7 where a goal was called back, and they were knocked out in Round 2.

The San Jose Sharks' prized offseason acquisition may not be on hand to help the team stave off elimination after a rough appearance in Game 5. The San Jose Sharks have allowed three or less goals in nine of their last 14 games. I think we got better.

The Sharks came out strong at home and were able to hold the Blues to just four shots in the first period, but St. Louis outshot the Sharks by a 36-10 margin over the next 40 minutes of play. Jaden Schwartz added two more goals in the third period to secure his second hat trick of the playoffs and increase the Blues' lead to 5-0.

That's a pretty poor pass by Karlsson right through Justin Braun's legs and, on top of that, it looked like Karlsson may have taken away Jones' eyes on the shot.

NHL officials have been very busy this post-season coming out with their hands up and issuing yet another apology on blown calls that seemed to propel the Sharks into the win column, which has them tied for the league post season record at two (2) official league apologies. Vladimir Tarasenko was granted a penalty shot a few minutes later after Brent Burns tripped him up on a breakaway chance. With the report we got, we felt he could play and get through the game.

"I thought we had a good start, " center Logan Couture said.

At that point in the game, the Sharks let their emotions take over and found themselves in a world of penalty trouble. DeBoer offered no update Saturday on Karlsson's condition. With a wide open shot, Karlsson buried it behind Jordan Binnington, giving the Sharks the win. They missed their only other chance by Jimmy Roberts in 1968.
